SUGGESTION: long time Trimmer annoyance

This has bugged me for years.

When I double-click in the Cursor Position (in point) box, I'd really like it if "Selection Length" was cleared.

Currently it's not, so if I specify an in point and an out point by doubleclicking in the boxes and entering a timecode, the selection length from my previous usage of the trimmer will hang around and give me the wrong in/out points.

Is it possible to add an option which clears the "Selection Length" automatically when a new In Point ("Cursor Position") is specified?

In Preferences / Editing there is an option "Collapse loop region when no time selection is present" Do you have this checked?

Why use the boxes? Placing the cursor and marking I and O will giver you the selection you want (Tab will allow you to transfer video and audio, video only or audio only while A will add the selection after the cursor on the Timeline). Much quicker all round I find.
