I saw my mistake immediately after writing the message in a big rush (a
reliable recipe for embarrassment) and hitting the "Send" button... For
the sake of completeness:

Use an enum to define keycodes and fix CTRL and backspace key having
the same keycode.
This is because KEY_CTRL was supposed to be the name of the "key class",
not the key, but that was later misunderstood.
Obviously that was some major bad naming....

I never had a mouse with more than 3 buttons. When I perform a middle or
right click within MPlayer window, I get the usual "No bind found for
key 'MOUSE_BTN…" messages when not using -nomouseinput idependently from
Ctrl being held down or not. So at least on my part I rather don't care :-)

Thank you very much again,
