Forget that. The problem is the following: a keypress is taken into
account only if the key is kept pressed for about half a second (key
modifiers are generally pressed at least that time when used as a
combination with a click, that's why they appear to be working as
usual), a bit like the Power button needs to be pressed for some time
to be taken into account. If a normal key is pressed long enough, it
repeats until it is released, as usual.
