Aha - I think it might be having issues with the fact I have I v9 Flash player 
(based on seeing other Flash things around which *almost* work but have funny 
little quirks). Escape does work (thanks!), but I seem to have to hold it down 
for quite a while  (compared to the other keys) before it responds, which is 
why I didn't spot it the other day.

(I love Repton. It's one of the very few games I ever actually played right 
through to the end as a kid.)

I should probably find a 'native' BBC emulator to put on this machine, but I'm 
not sure what the pickings are like for Linux at the moment...
