In Sublime Text 2, one may extend selection to include the next occurence of the current selection with CTRL+D.

I often find myself pressing this one too many times, necessitating I clear selection and start again, albeit more carefully.

Is there an opposite shortcut that removes the most recently added selection from the current selection?

CTRL+U

Quick Add Next

To add the next occurrence of the current word to the selection, use Quick Add Next, which is bound to Ctrl+D on Windows and Linux, or Command+D on OS X.

Again, if you go too far, use Undo Selection (Ctrl+U, or Command+U on OS X) to step backwards.
