I don't understand what happend about using SculptMode with ShakeKey. I
remember sending a couple of bug report about this in decembre and after
some corrections by Nicolas, being very pleased to use this feature.
It's very sad to see that the current version of blender is not able
anymore to sculpt shapekeys... It's a very important feature to work on
Now I got some kind of error message: "Cannot sculpt on unlocked shape
key". What does that mean?
