Simple question:
In OmegaT (2.6.3), does activating the Auto-propagation of Translations in the Project Properties turn the Go To > Next Untranslated Segment feature into a simple Go To Next segment ?

I am seeing exactly this behavior.
Is this intentional, or a bug ?

That would be odd. The option to deactivate auto-propagation is fairly recent, but Ctrl+N and Ctrl+U have always had two different actions.

It's a feature.
In Options > Editing Behaviour, there's an option called "Go To Next Untranslated Segment stops when there is at least one alternative translation".
When you uncheck Auto-propagation of translations, you actually tell OmegaT to consider every translated segment as an alternative translation (that's how they are not "auto-propagating").
So, if Go To Next... is checked, Ctrl+U will stop on every segment. If you uncheck Go To Next..., Ctrl+U will behave as you expected.
