Adding marker removes existing marker properties
Hitting * or alt/option-* on a frame with an existing marker should just open the edit marker settings dialog. Instead it wipes out all existing properties (comments, color, duration, etc.).
I use the marker text comments field heavily and would be great to be able to open and modify existing markers without having to take my hands off the keyboard.
