However, this does not fix the problem on _all_ layouts...
The problem is this: on German layout, Ctrl-Alt-6 will be translated
by Cocoa to <C-]> (an unprintable character). On a Swedish layout,
Ctrl-Alt-9 is translated by Cocoa to "9" instead of <C-]> (Alt-9 is
"]" on Swedish layout). Why Cocoa translates keys differently I do
not know so I'm not sure what can be done about this.
At any rate, the problem that was reported is at least fixed now
(hopefully this doesn't break any other keyboard input
functionality...the input code is a bit of a mess unfortunately).
