#2752 new enhancement

AHK hotkeys/hotstrings not passing via xpra win32

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: stdedos
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.1
Component: client Version: 4.0.x
Keywords: win32 Cc:


Split from #2571:

I have registered ^!e::€ as a Hotkey in AutoHotkey (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm) (i.e. when Ctrl+Alt+E is pressed, give instead - this would be more like a "Hotstring" https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Hotstrings.htm, but that's "internal AHK discussion")
Due to internal workings (and having other Hotstrings in the same script), AHK registers the installation of the keyboard hook https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_InstallKeybdHook.htm.
The spurious key event is coming from triggering the hotkey. Registering the Keyboard Hook may or may not affect this.

My original issue is that, with the aforementioned shortcut active, the Ctrl+Alt+E is not doing alias-expansion in bash. However, it was additionally not giving anything else in response to the keypress.

Using a different remote access software, the replacement is sent correctly.
When the shortcut is disabled, everything works as normal via both ways.

Please attach the -d keyboard client output for Ctrl+Alt+E.
