Can't happen if there is no cell currently in editing mode.
At the top of your rawKeyDown handler, just add "put the target" to  
check this.

Anyway, you should get true or false in the message box:
Seems that the rawKeyDown message is not sent?
Where is the focus?
Where is your rawKeyDown handler placed ?
Difficult to tell you more without details...
