Without my workaround, no Command keys work. Select All, Copy, Paste,  
Cut, etc. do nothing.

The event with the A key and the Command modifier set is not being  
handled correctly in my environment. The code in  
QsciScintillaBase::keyPressEvent (line 394-396) expects  
QKeyEvent.text() to have an "A" in it and in my environment it is "".  
QKeyEvent.key() however is set properly and does indicate the A key.

The result is the key stroke is completely ignored.
