Thanks for your report.  Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about the
Mac OS X code than I will be able to look into it, but in the mean time,
can you use C-h l to see what events Emacs thinks it is receiving?
E.g. try the "start Emacs and hit C-h" and then do C-h l or M-x
view-lossage RET or type "(view-lossage)" in the *scratch* buffer and
then select "Evaluate and Print" in the "Lisp-Interaction" menu, in case
the C-h and M-x bindings are too messed-up to use.

You can try it after hitting a few different C-<something> and
M-<something> combinations, just just make sure you type something
recognisable in-between so that you can figure out which (sequences) of
events corresponds to those bindings in the view-lossage output.
