The patch in the attachment removes update_key_state() from mouse.c - 
the decision whether this is the right approach or not is left to 
someone else. If you think it's worth a try to send this patch to 
wine-patches, please do so, I'll have to continue using a custom 
patchset anyway since the app I want to run doesn't work on vanilla 
wine, so I don't heave really a strong interest in getting this patch 

Getting patches accepted was quite hard for me, and that was because 
lack of feedback. It leads to nowhere if I submit the very same patch 
more than twice, and without feedback I can't improve it. So, my two 
patches (one for alsa/dsound and this for the stuck keys) will remain 
public domain and free for everyone to use, and if you feel like it, to 
improve and send back to wine for inclusion.

I'll (more or less) retire from writing patches. But of course if I come 
up with a fix for something that I think is worth sharing, I'll let you 
guys know ;)
