I'm using Ctrl-b-o extensively to move focus between panes. However lot of the times I don't release Ctrl key and I start swapping panes instead.

Is there a way to turn off this behaviour?

To disable, place this in your ~/.tmux.conf:

unbind-key -T prefix C-o

Or maybe you'd like this combination to work like the one you really want to use. If so, then forget about the above, place the following line instead:

bind-key -T prefix C-o select-pane -t :.+

Restart the tmux server or reload the file (prefix:source ~/.tmux.confEnter).
