Hi Josh,

this is a bug! We had the same thing on FAUmachine and I fixed it a
while ago. The problem is that an application has to release all keys
(internally) if focus is lost. Btw. Quake has the same problem, which is
very annoying. :-)))

hrm. I am still for 1! :-)) I sweared to myself that I implement the
first thing in FAUmachine, but I never took the time to do it.
