sorry, for pasting the wrong link.

to be sure I downloaded and tested this version again and it still 
doesn't fix the AltGr problem reliably.

I tested also on my older notebook which has Windows XP and only one 
core with the current official Cygwin release: no problems with AltGr at 
all. My newer notebook has Windows 7 and quadcore.

So it seems that this is a timing problem or race condition that has 
something to do with newer Windows versions and/or multi core architecture.

Best regards,
