On Windows it is possible to get the menu selection mechanism to act as though the up and down keys were indefinitely repeated.

To produce this behaviour, start gtypist and press the following:

- enter (to start series Q)
- enter (to start lesson Q1)
- enter, enter, enter (to skip the intro text)
- esc, e, y (to exit, back to the menu)
- down

Observe that the final down key appears to repeat.

Affects at least Windows XP and Windows 7.
Using gtypist 2.9.2.
