Hitting Ctrl-Shift-N when an existing terminal window has focus opens a new terminal window with the same working directory as the old terminal window. How can I prevent this?

When I need to open a terminal I press CTRL+ALT+T to save time. Most of the time absolutely nothing happens, I try to press same combination again, and still nothing happens. After like 5-8 tries terminal window finally appears.
Is the following I will explain possible with a key combination?
Here is the image:
As you can see, the terminal is the focus window (Front window) and Nautilus is in the background (Back Window). How can I grab a folder or file from Nautilus without loosing focus on the terminal (Without making the terminal go to the background and Nautilus to the front) and drop it in the terminal?.
I just installed 12.10 (clean install and updates). USB keyboard and mouse work fine EXCEPT the keyboard does not work in a terminal window (USB mouse is working in terminal). keyboard is Logitech MK320 and associated mouse. I'm typing in a mozilla window on the keyboard at this very moment and when I switch to the terminal window, nothing can be typed.
EDIT: Answered my own question; terminator allows per-pixel resizing if you disable window hinting in the preferences.I have an annoyance with resizing terminal emulators. I use stacking WMs (xfwm4 on one setup, compiz standalone on another) but I usually like to tile my windows manually. I've enabled edge snapping in both of these WMs.
