Hi List.

I have noticed a difference in the logical way key events works on Gtk2 
and Darwin.

If i change the value of UTF8Key to "" (empty string) in an overridden 
method of DoUTF8KeyPress,
then on Gtk2 the event is stopped and doesn't propegate to neither LCL 
nor the OS.
However if I do the same on Darwin a subsequent set of event are fired, 
amongst those a CN_CHAR
event and if not handled, then it is send to the OS.

Is this a bug, then i'll report it in the bug-tracker.

ps. using on both machines:
FPC: 2.6.0
Lazarus 1.1 (rev 39757)
