[SDL] Modifier keys pressed during initialization stick

If a modifier key (ctrl, alt, shift, or meta) is held down while my 
program starts, but released during initialization, SDL thinks it's 
still held. In particular, I use "ctrl+F5" to start my program from an 
IDE, so keypresses I get have an extraneous ctrl+ modifier on them 
until I press and release ctrl.

This isn't a big problem, but it appears to be a bug and a fix or 
workaround would be nice. Is this known?
