Strange control-key behavior

This is similar to the CAPS LOCK BUG reported earlier.  VNC appears to be
incorrectly calling the functions for key presses or at least not coded to
handle possible error situations and keyboard anomalies can happen.

	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
