Unfortunately the keyboard-handling at present is rather Anglo-centric, and
was only tested on UK and US keyboards before we released it.  We've had
some suggestions as to how to cope with other keyboards, and are working on a
better general solution.

Martin C. Mueller <mcm "at"> told us he'd done some quick hacks to
support German NT keyboards so it might be worth asking him to make them
available.   Martin?
