I put a messagebox in OnKeyUp() to tell me what nChar it's getting.
It enters OnKeyUp() for every function key except F6.  If I hold
down the control key, then it also get's F6 and it get's it with the right
key code, 117.  Could Gnome be trapping that key for something?

Other than that, I put up a new version today, 2.01c, that works
pretty well under WINE except for this F6 issue and that the
RoboHelp system does't work yet.
