#1687 suggestion for auto-type

When using the autotype key (default CTRL+ALT+A), KP starts "typing" as soon as you have released the "A" key. The CTRL and/or ALT key may still be down. This sometimes confuses some windows that the information is "typed" in. In some of these cases, the information ends up in wrong fields, possibly revealing the password.
Can auto-type be improved to wait until all keys are "up"?
Or alternatively, can a short delay (possibly configurable) be added?

    KeePass releases key modifiers before auto-typing, so the problem shouldn't occur.

    If you wish, you can of course add a delay. The {DELAY X} code waits X milliseconds. You can prepend this to the standard auto-type sequence, see http://keepass.info/help/base/autotype.html#changedefaultseq
