The title is basically everything what I know. CUA keys just don't work in magit status buffer.

In older versions, it worked. Sometimes. Now it consistently just doesn't work.

Emacs 26.2.
Newest magit.

As @npostavs figured out elsewhere: [...] the problem is that diff hunks have a keymap text property, which is higher priority than emulation-mode-map-alists. See (elisp) Searching Keymaps:

           (or (FIND-IN (get-char-property (point) 'keymap))
               (FIND-IN-ANY emulation-mode-map-alists)

See the double post for more information.
