OK, well, this seems to confirm my guess that keystrokes are not being
suppressed when an input method "says" they should be.

This is a very, very bad thing.

Since it's so nasty, I'll try to find time in the next week to build the latest
WebKit and actually do some real testing to confirm this and see if I can find
a solution. Unless someone else wants to...

Thanks for helping with this, as it absolutely must be fixed or input methods
simply aren't going to work properly at all.
