Thanks. I then consider the behaviour on w32 to be a bug (if there is no intention with this behaviour of course). What would other think of this?

Sure it's a bug, but a bug of the OS. Setting w32-recognize-altgr to nil appears to avoid this bug for people who don't need AltGr at all.

The bug is that Windows does not have a separate modifier flag for AltGr, it uses Left-Ctrl + Right-Alt flags to indicate that AltGr is being pressed. So we can't tell that Left-Ctrl is pressed when AltGr is down.

If you can find a proper fix for this bug, we can probably get rid of w32-recognize-altgr.
