Hmm.  Since clicking on the typesetting button (which has changed from 
green to red) while the process is running stops the process, I think it 
is logical to keep the Ctrl-T as a toggle; no matter which way one 
starts typesetting, the same method works to interrupt it.  Normally a 
user doesn't enter new material while typesetting is going on, so I 
don't see  Ctrl-T being "too easy to hit" as really a problem (not that 
it's all that easy to hit by accident anyway).

My two cents' worth -- David
