[vdr] Usability issue: "back" key not working as expected

I think the "back" key is not working as expected (at least for me ;)) and I 
think that's confusing and illogical.
1) Hitting "back" key after "info" key to leave info OSD doesn't close OSD 
but shows the schedule or the recordings OSD.
2) Pressing the "back" key after any key defined in keymacros.conf also 
doesn't close the OSD. Using the default keymacros.conf: hitting "blue" 
then "back" opens the main menu.

I know that the "menu" key always closes the current OSD. But nevertheless 
"back" associates that by hitting it you'll get to where you came from. I 
think nobody thinks of getting to VDR's previous menu in its menu 

Is there a chance that this will change someday or is this the intended
