thanks! I tried your suggestion and now it is nearly perfect ;-)

Only remaining drawback is now, that Ctrl+AltGr key kombinations still
don't work when invoking/raising top level windows, but everything else
is now working flawless: Ctrl, Shift+Ctrl, Alt, AltGr, Shift+Alt,
Shift+AltGr etc. ;-) I think one has to live with the restriction that
Ctrl+AltrGr doesn't work under Windows (BTW it works under Linux
xserver, wheres Alt+AltGr works neither under Linux nor Windows).
