Actually, looking at the examples, none of those do what we do, so
that isn't really a valid comparison.  Possible Qt bug, or driver, or
it is just a quirk that it works on windows & linux.

Either way, we will have to have mac specific hacks, and if we go the
non SDL way, then we need to update the docs for mac users.
The reserved key issues is also troublesome, and we are getting into
more mac specific hacks to avoid those (if that is possible).
