Well, we may have a VM bug then.  I just booted my laptop into in Windows
and that Squeak VM was able to detect Shift+Tab.  However, back in Linux VM
(both Cog and Spur 3427), Shift+Tab is not even detected by Sensor.

I went into GEdit of Ubuntu and Shift+Tab works there...

Eliot, could this be a bug in the Linux VM?
