The problem with missing keyups is due to the modifier
keys changing between the keyup and keydown giving you
a different character for the keyup and the keydown.

Unlike the X11 version the GLUT the Windows version
does not provide fully modified key events.  Just
capitalization on the shift modifier.  So you don't
get the same problem.
