Hi Alexander,

I have no expertise in key handling code, but technically the fix looks 

I'd only suggest to add a delay after the last keyRelease() call and 
before checking the value of 'state' in the test to ensure that 
everything is processed as expected even if the Robot sends events 

best regards,
