If you're right I'll be embarrassed. ;) Used to be on Macs you got 
repeated keyups no matter what you did -- I remember having a terrible 
time with it, which is why I didn't even go there for this question. But 
I just did a quick test and it looks like it works as you'd expect now, 
which means your suggestion would be the right one.

Not sure how Windows works now. It used to provide discrete keydown and 
keyup messages as expected.
