Using WikiWizard editor for polish (pl_PL) locale is very annoying. Typing some of the national characters causes editor actions to fire as side-effect.

This is due to the standard polish keyboard layout - the national characters are typed with the rigth Alt held down. This is mapped as "Ctrl-Alt" key combo by the swing event system:

CharacterKeyboard key-strokeJava key event mapping
ąRight_Alt-aCtrl-Alt-a
ćRight_Alt-cCtrl-Alt-c
ęRight_Alt-eCtrl-Alt-e
łRight_Alt-lCtrl-Alt-l
ńRight_Alt-nCtrl-Alt-n
óRight_Alt-oCtrl-Alt-o
śRight_Alt-sCtrl-Alt-s
żRight_Alt-zCtrl-Alt-z
źRight_Alt-xCtrl-Alt-x

As the result, when I try to type "ó" (which is quite common in polish language), the editor fires "Attachements" (Ctrl-o) action. This is the only key stroke that is problematic. All the other national characters can be used without any side effects.

Didn't have time to look at the editor source code, but I suppose checking for "Alt" key flag in the event would be enought to supress this unwanted behaviour.
