I believe that this is a sort of 'feature' in Windows 95, which I'll fix
in the next version - In Windows NT, it's possible to send Shift, Control
and Alt key events which distinguish between the left and right keys.
However, rather than just converting these to undistinguishable Shift,
Control and Alt events, Windows 95 actually does nothing with them. This
will be fixed in the next (post Revision 13) version of WinVNC!

:) Yes indeed. I still have to check the compatibility issue but it
certainly works fine on NT 4.0, so we're hopeful.
