It's a hardware thing. When using the buttons as "quickkeys" (i.e. holding
F2/F3 and the left/right/down key at the same time), the hardware can't
differentiate the F2+UP or F3+UP combination. The hardware key detection
is split into 2 channels. The F keys and UP are on one channel, and the
LEFT, RIGHT and DOWN are on the other and we can therefore accurately
detect one key from each group pressed at the same time, but not 2 keys
from the same group pressed at the same time.
