I'm not entirely sure what this procedure is describing ;-)

Sure. I'm good with it either way - most of this stuff is weird because 
it attempts to translate some combos (ctrl+enter, ctrl-tab) into MDI 
system key combinations (I think this is why it's starts out as 
WM_SYSKEYDOWN in the first place so that an MDI window can capture and 
translate it properly). My preferred way to deal with it would be to 
turn all of the translations off but that's apparently not an option.
