thanks, you point into a plausible direction.
the AltGr key counts as an option key, and the script editor looks for it.
My notebook has a left Alt and an AltGr. However not everything is transparent,
because a test keydown handler in a field behaved strange:
  on keydown ch
    if the optionkey then....
    pass keydown
  end keydown
