Sounds to me like it's an X11 bug, since it occurs on both Linux and OSX
hosts. Seems to be aggravated/caused by spawning an X11 program while
another one is picking up/handling depressed keys?

(Let's be honest, my keys would be depressed if I was on one of those
machines ... ho ho ho)

If it can't be reproduced on another host/os combo, one place to look
would be Arch / OSX's X11 configure and make flags.
