Option to disable SwiftKey X when using physical keyboard (connectbot)
It seems impossible to turn of SwiftKeyX completely when using the physical keyboard. The idea is that every time I write with the on-screen keyboard I need SwiftKeyX. But if I use the physical keyboard e.g. to type in non-human language (like programming or shell commands using connectbot) SwiftKeyX's auto-completion makes no sense.
In the menu there is a setting "physical keyboard" which turns off most of the auto-correction but the uppercase-after-a-colon correction.
In the following there are two examples having swiftkeyX disabled for the physical keyboard:
1 - This is an exxample usinh the physical keyboar. No correc but uppercase.
2 - This is an example using the visual keyboard. Uppercase, autocompletion and autocorrection are done.
It would be also very nice to have a fast way to turn on/off swiftKeyX completely for physical keyboards using a custom hardware button on the physical keyboard.

I've noticed the same or similar issue on my Motorola Droid 4 with hardware keyboard and ConnectBot when Swiftkey is enabled. The colon ":" key, (hold shift & press .) no longer works as expected. It outputs a semi-colon instead. The only way to get a colon is to press shift and hold the "." key, which ends up looking something like this in the terminal:
This is a major bummer for vi users, and Android power users in general.
Please fix this! If anyone knows a workaround, please let us know.
