I'm not 100% here, but I think the "modifier" keys (Shift, control, alt, "apple" if you happen to have one of those...) aren't actually broadcast like that. If I remember correctly, they are sent "along" with another keypress, like the letter A. Then you'll get one GdkKeyEvent, and that will have the "key" and the "modifier" list.

Pretty sure that's how it works... tried finding the docs, as you mention there's not much on keys out there.
Good luck, -Harry
