Swap Ctrl and Capslock in WinUAE

I am part time on Windows using the registry hack to swap ctrl and caps lock ( "Scancode Map" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout ) and it works perfectly in Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10

It does not work out of the box inside WinUAE though.

Solution I found: Go to Settings->Host->Input
Select the correct keyboard from the list! USB keyboard might show up as HID keyboard.
Switch to alternate Configuration e.g. "Configuration #1"
Find CAPITAL and select CTRL instead of "Caps Lock", set Toggle to "no"
Find LCONTROL and select "Caps Lock" from the Drop Down Menu and set Toggle to "yes"
When using another keyboard you will most probably have to do that again.

It does work out of the box without the need to configure anything in FS-UAE and it works perfectly on Mac OS X FS-UAE too (its in the system preferences there).

Question: any reason why WinUAE does behave like that?
