now it gets worse. i reduced the loop to this:

        while(1) { 
                SDL_Event event; 
                if(SDL_PollEvent(&event)) {
                        if(event.type == SDL_QUIT) 
                        if(event.type == SDL_KEYDOWN) {
                                int k = event.key.keysym.sym;
                                printf("keydown %d (%c)\n",
                                                k, isprint(k) ? k : '.');

and it still missing keys sometimes!
how can this happen?
