Disabling client computer's modifier keys

I'm new to VNC. Is it possible with key mapping to disable a VNC client
computer's modifier keys? If I'm controlling a Mac with a Mac and try to use
a Command-char, Option-char, or Option-char combo, it will issue the command
to the VNC Server running on the local client, not to the host. Timbuktu
automatically disables all modifier keys on the client when controlling,
regardless of whether one is using window or full screen mode. Maybe I'm
missing something but I find this a bit of a handicap. Same goes for web
based control, although I'm sure it would be well nigh impossible to disable
a browser's mod keys.
