IE: CTRL+Click to open links in a new window

It does not seem possible to follow a link using IE7. For example, the "You are using FCKeditor" link in the Demo pages. NOTE: IE6 and Firefox work fine, ctrl-click and shift-click open the window.
I've had a search of the existing tickets and can't find anything relevant. However, this seems such a fundamental problem I can't believe it hasn't already been reported. Fingers crossed you've already investigated this and know of a workaround.
If there is no workaround, might I suggest adding an "Open Link" menu item to the link context menu and an "Open Link" button to the Link Editor dialog.
I had a look at the problem and I suspect the event model is incorrect for contenteditable elements. I think this event is bypassing the normal event handlers and cannot be caught.
