Couldn't find the bugs during ESC:
- https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95635
- https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95761

The 2nd one is in the [META] list.

The first is some really nice clash for German keyboards, as you need AltGr to type "][".

I've added my original patch, which AFAI remember didn't work.

Subject: [PATCH] tdf#95635 Invert left Ctrl eval in case of AltGr

Windows handles pressing AltGr as VK_RMENU && VK_LCONTROL.

In case of VK_RMENU the meaning of VK_LCONTROL is inverted, which
means left Ctrl is actually pressed, if VK_LCONTROL is not set!
