USB Keyboard Loses Shift State When Changing Shift Keys

Haiku hrev30344, gcc4, Lenovo T61, Kinesis USB keyboard:
- In a text editor start selecting text with left shift + cursor keys.
- While still holding the left shift key, press the right shift key.
- Release the left shift key, while still holding the right shift key.
- Continue holding the right shift key and extending the selection with the cursor keys.
Works fine with PS/2 keyboard, but with the USB keyboard the selection is lost. Apparently the application is no longer aware that a shift key is held.
In case anyone wonders, the Kinesis keyboard has the up/down and left/right cursor keys on different sides of the keyboard, which makes switching shift keys necessary when selecting with the cursor keys.
