[SDL] no keyboard attached -> error

hello again,
again this question,

an sdl based application won't start without a keyboard attached. there 
must be an error in the sdl-library.

i have to check it soon, but i think that
initializes the keyboard. and if no keyboard is present, the library 
will produce an error and prevent the application from starting.

maybe anyone knows the sdl functions in detail and can give me a hint.

and when i find the solution i will post it here.
