use case:
-start dosbox
-type something at the prompt
-in windows XP/2003 (possibly others), alt+tab away
from the dosbox window
-alt+tab back

result:
keyboard stops working in the dosbox window. if I click
on another window, then click back to dosbox, the
keyboard functionality generally starts working again.

    IIRC, there was a similar problem with Exult. You would
    loose keyboard or mouse when you switched virtual screens in
    Linux.I think it's related to SDL.

    The bug has been fixed.
    Wait for the upcoming new version to see it.

    The updated source is available by cvs.
