Using DOSBox 0.61 on German Windows XP Pro with a
German Keyboard, I have encountered the following problem:
Keys accessed via AltGr-combinations (the Alt-Key to
the right of space bar) do not work in DOSBox.
As this includes {[]}\~@| this severely impacts the
usability.

    Dosbox is written by people with an us international
    keyboard layout as does DOS for most people.

    You can try to set it to us internal if you really need a
    key from that (but you don't as you can use / as well)

    The next version will have a keymapper to deal with those
    matters.

    As this is documented in the readme as well I will close
    this report and mark it fixed as it will be fixed in the
    next version.
