Thank you very much, Robby, for your testing code. I've run it under
DrScheme and AltGr+key presses are registered correctly (that is, I
see the punctuation characters correctly registered and printed).
Still, same key presses under DrScheme's editor issue commands instead
of printing expected punctuation characters.

I thought that maybe AltGr is being confused with Alt, therefore I've
given a glimpse at menu -> Edit -> Keybindings -> Show Active
Keybindings, but none of the Alt related keybindings is related to the
misinterpreted characters.

Any further suggestion? Thanks.
