1) It is more complex.
Currently: "Hide on typing" excludes modifier keys (shift/ctrl) if 
pressed alone. Reason: depending on config, they can be used with the 
mouse (e.g shift: extend selection; ctrl: click codetool link)

2) That said: I am open to the idea. Patch welcome. (With configurable time)
