I apologize for the commotion.

I forgot to mention in the OP that I am running XKeymacs Version 3.47.
 Xkeymacs is not active (disabled) when Emacs is active.

After exiting XKeymacs completely everything works as expected and
Emacs catches the Windows keypresses before they hit the system.

So, presumably XKeymacs isn't completely disabling when it
`deactivates' when i switch into Emacs :(
