#170 can't type, alt accelerator is invoked

Using CVS as of 12/29/03

I am trying to type in the editor, but boa thinks I am using
the accelerators with the alt key.

For example, if I press "s" it thinks I am pressing "alt s" and
the save as window pops up. Other examples:

"s" -> Alt "s" (Save as)
"a" -> Alt "a" (Switch to App)
"3" -> Alt "3" (comment)
"4" -> Alt "4" (uncomment)

These are tested, I included them to support the hipotesis
that the alt key is being appended to anything I type.

All I did was open a previously created project and this
happens when I try to type anything in the main frame
window's code.

    This seems to be working now.

    Thanks.

    This problem is back again. It seems it happens sometimes
    but not allways.

    Using wxGTK-2.4.2, with gtk+-2.2.4 support.

    This is a bug in wxWindows/wxPython under wxGTK.

    When Num-Lock is on, it is looks as if ALT is held in to the
    code.

    As a workaround, just make sure num-lock is off while working
    in Boa.

    I'm leaving this open so people can see it.

    Riaan.
