0006827: control-C event detection broken by #duplicateAllControlAndAltKeys preference
With the #duplicateAllControlAndAltKeys set (default for Squeak 3.10), a keyboard event originating from the control-c keyboard (control key pressed plus $c key) produces an event that answers false to #controlKeyPressed. There is no combination of keys presses that can actually be detected as a control-C event. This cannot possibly be right regardless of user preferences.

This causes a problem for the CommandShell package because command shell windows detect <ctl>c input and treat it as a request to interrupt any currently running commands (similar to <ctl>c in a unix terminal session).

There are no notes attached to this issue.
