Hi Al,

One of the things that caused the error you mentioned is  the not so 
uniform transplatform behaviour of commands like rawkeydown in this 
case.
A little test showed a big difference between mac and win32 platform.
The modifier keys, the shift and capslock keys are not triggering a 
rawkeydown message on the mac-side. But they do on the win32 platform.
If the people at RR could make this behavior more uniform between 
platforms it would enhance crossplatformity
Hopefully they will consider Dar Scott bug 1434 when doing this 
eventually.
(will repost the code when this problem is solved)

Greetings,
Wouter
