Short description of error
Strips that are locked in the VSE does move when you use Insert/Remove Gaps.
Locked strips should be locked in place no matter which tools you chose to use.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
3 clips with gaps.
Lock the last one.
Positioned at first one, remove gaps.
See gap between clip1 and clip2 dissapear but do also see clip3 move!



Confirmed with master hash d2f4900. Also positioning cursor over clip 2 and removing gaps also moves clip 3 - basically locking has no effect on the remove gaps command.

Is it possible that this is intentional for some arcane reason?

In fact, in the description of the command (hover over it), it does say "independent of selection or locked state of strips" so I guess this is intentional.

Hmm, so it does...
Is this for a special reason? Not affecting locked strips would be much more useful. As it is now you can't use the two of them together in any meaningful way (That I can see)
