This suggests something is working differently with the keyboard than 
other computers.  You might try switching the USE BIOS CALLS flag to 
TRUE and see if it makes a different.

Control-J and RETURN both return the same ASCII value.  TR tells them apart
by looking at the keyboard scan codes - which are different for these two
