The caps lock key should not be polled directly for mistaken use of caps lock
for uppercase. This is because the key can be remapped in the operating system
for other reasons such as changing keyboard layouts as is referenced in the bug
report in the URL.

Apparently when this happens for some users the caps lock inversion that
OpenOffice.org does to try to fix this 'issue' doesn't even go away when they
quit OpenOffice.org.

There is more detail about this issue in the URL listed.

Took me forever to understand why it switches layouts spontaneously!!!

PLEASE... fix it.
