Yeah, I saw that line, but the conditional I mentioned determines
whether or not the program actually terminates. The way it's written, it
reads like "IF NOT (Control Is Pressed) THEN Exit," so I expect it to
_not_ exit when I have Control pressed, but that isn't what happens.

That's irrelevant to this issue.

Correct, but if you press Ctrl and Enter, it doesn't print any text at
all. Looking at the code, I think it should at least still print the
text, but it doesn't, and that is what I think is a bug.
