Actually, that's what X reports. So it's not necessarily a bug. SDL,
however, reports "pressed, pressed, ..." and only one "released" when
the key is really released, which isn't entirely correct either.
One could even argue that the X/freeglut way is the better one, and
that it's up to fgfs to disable autorepeat for all keys that make use
of <mod-up>. It just looks as if neither SDL, nor glut allow setting
autorepeat on a per-key basis. X does. (Hey, Andy! Where's --enable-X? :-)
