Strange control-key behavior

Hi, All,

I've searched the FAQ's and archives with no luck.  I'm running
WinVNCviewer 3.3.3 R3 and VNCserver 3.3.3r2 on Solaris.  Whenever I press
the control key from Windows (even just depressing and releasing it
without pressing any other key) the viewer gets in a strange mode where
all keypresses are assumed to be control.  For instance, if I'm in a shell
window, when it's in this odd mode, if I press "r" I'll see "^R"; if I
press "c" it will assume an intr character.  I can get out of this mode by
either going to full-screen (or out of full-screen if I was in it to begin
with), or by pressing "Shift-control".

I can also get into this mode by simply launching an xterm window.

Any ideas where to look to track this down?

Thanks!

Bill
