Meh, you people are really nitpicky. I would have expected that
Shift+Del will actually delete the file, not cut the text here.

I think it's arguable whether this is a bug or not. But in any case,
this is up to the MATE upstream developers what the expected behavior
of Shift+Del is in this case.

In fact, you should not test any other Linux distribution, but download
caja in source from the upstream website, compile it yourself and test
how the vanilla version behaves.

If the upstream version behaves as the Debian package, it's an upstream
bug. If not, they probably changed behavior upstream and caja just
needs to be updated in Debian. I highly doubt that someone intentionally
changed this behavior in Debian.
