On a German keyboard this behaviour would be confusing. ^ is a dead key
so we always use the SPACE key to force it. It should be similar to the
X11 build and there I have too to press the SPACE character to force the
dead key. As David mentioned the only small problem is the "buffer read
only" warning.
