Right Shift Key in RDP?

First of all, I LOVE this application and have abandoned using Dameware Mini RC completely for all of my RDP use.  I support many servers and around 200 workstations, and this tool is invaluable to keep listings, history, settings etc.

I have only one problem - my right shift key does not work for typing in passwords, etc in an RDP session.  This occurs on every computer I've tried to use Terminals on.

This may be a small thing, but it's a big problem as many of the passwords I use include a # sign or capitalized letter that you would normally use the right shift key on to type.  It works fine if I use the left shift key, but that's awkward.

Am I the only one having this problem?  I really did search all of the settings and this discussion and issue tracker firt before asking.  I'd really like to know if this can be fixed or if it's something stupid that I just can't figure out.

Oh, and by the way, it's NOT my keyboard or the machine I'm using.  I've tried it on many others too.....
