Thanks for the hint.
I've a question left, it's more a curiosity: if I understood things 
right, the subsequent "false" KeyRelease/KeyPress events are put on the 
event queue simultaneously, so one can assume that in the exact moment a 
"false" KeyRelease event gets available on the queue, the corresponding 
KeyPress is there too. Is this correct?
