#31 alt key stuck when returning from locked desktop

Perhaps this has something to do with my Lenovo's fingerprint login system, but every time that I unlock my computer with my fingerprint, the ALT key appears to be stuck "on".

Repro steps:

1. bring up a window that is not maximized
2. lock my system (ctrl + alt + del, enter)
3. swipe my finger across fingerprint reader - this logs me back in
4. left click in the middle of the original window opened in step 1, allowing me to move the window

If I press ALT again, this fixed the problem, so it's not a huge show stopper. I wonder if adding the fingerprint reader process to the blacklist would resolve it.

Hope this is enough info.

    Update. This also occurs when I unlock without using my fingerprint and just enter my password.

    Thanks for the report. I understand the problem and will see if I can reproduce and fix this.

    I suspect that the problem is caused by the following. As soon as you press Alt (in the Ctrl+Alt+Del sequence), Taekwindow registers this. But then you press Del, which means that the OS takes over and the releasing of Alt is never received by Taekwindow.

    Bug reproduced and confirmed. (You need to use the classic logon screen to reproduce this.) Will see what I can do.

    Fixed in the current development version. Hope to release it sometime this week.
