That makes sense. The emulator usually reads the PC keyboard only
once at the start of the frame. For the keyboard controllers, it
needs to update the TIA controller registers more than that though,
since it triggers through the key collumns. I think there is a bug
in PCAEWin, that forgets about the state of the Switches, whenever
the SWCHA register is writen too, or something. I think you should
contact John Dullea about it.
