To delegate Alt-F4 to Windows standard routine we have to catch it in

Alt and then F4)?

It comes in peace, as one piece.

More specifically the events should come as the following sequence:

Alt Down
F4 Down with Alt modifier set
F4 Up with Alt modifier set
Alt Up

If the second event is passed to Windows to handle, I suspect the third event may not arrive to Emacs.
