Does AltGr normally work in the Windows console?

There is a line of code in `core/keys.lua`:

   --if CURSES then ui.statusbar_text = '"'..key_seq..'"' end

Please uncomment that line and report what kinds of text the statusbar
shows for different AltGr combinations. At this time I'm not sure if/how
pdcurses handles composed keys...

I suspect that is because your non-Win32-console SSH client correctly
handles AltGr and forwards the correct codes over the wire.
