Description

Hitting the shift key in editor mode on Linux generates a key event and inserts
a character.  This doesn't happen on the other platforms.  Makes it impossible
to enter capital letters, so we need this fixed for M3 (should be an easy fix).

I thought I had this working right on Thursday, am looking into why it came
back.

Pavlov found a fix, awaiting approval to check it in.  (I was rejecting shifted
characters rather than the shift key event itself; need to check event->keyval
and match against all the possible modifier key vals.)
