Ah cool, I didn't know that.

But shouldn't it then -only- apply to keys that are held down at the time the keyboard is connected (i.e. the emulated Amiga recognizes the keys that are pressed down when keyboard gets connected / powered up)?

Because currently in WinUAE (e.g. when in Amiga shell) I can "disconnect" keyboard, type "Amiga rulez", walk away to get a coffee, come back 5 minutes later, then "connect" keyboard and see magically typed into the screen "Amiga rulez". I guess that shouldn't really be possible, or maybe I'm misunderstanding something?
