Thanks for the confirmation John.

Ken, I tried Alt-U but it doesn't make it work. But I think I was wrong
when I said nothing happens when I press Alt-R. I just notices the the
File menu is now highlighted as if I had pressed Alt-F.

I can work with the Alt-E,E,R but I like my Alt-R.

I do Alt+U (Unselect) before using the Alt+R=Rectangle select. That works
for me...
