that's a possibility, of course. however, the key didn't look
sticked, and since re-pressing always solved the problem (which,
btw, also sometimes occured with other keys during "hasty"
typing (when moving my fingers with warp 9 or more :) ),
it feels more like the missed key-release event to me.
(I dunno, maybe even in the hardware layer?)
besides that, I'm not really a fan of 'coked' keyboard mode :)))
