I didn't install bepo but I think I see what happens.  At one point we
found that Cygwin didn't allow to generate ASCII NUL, which is usually
mapped to Ctrl+Space.  The expression which special-cases this key
sequence just checked if the Ctrl key is pressed, but didn't check if
one of the Alt keys is pressed.  I fixed that in CVS.  Please test the
next developer snapshot from which should
be up in an hour or so.
