It's strange - it's like it ignores any key that you press if you are also holding down CTRL or ALT (or even CTRL+ALT) unless I also hold down SHIFT.
What platform are you on? This kind of stuff varies a lot from OS to OS.

This seems like a really basic question -

I had Soft Leather Armor [8,+0]
Then I bought Chain Mail (-2) [32+1], which I thought meant -2 to hit.

My char screen shows this though:
Soft Leather Armor
Melee
To-hit 35, +9
Shoot
To-hit 51, +7

Chain Mail
Melee
To-hit 35, +7
Shoot
To-hit 51, +5

I don't understand why the "to hit" bonuses dropped by 2 as expected with the Chain Mail, but the total number is the same for both armors.

The total number isn't the same - it's 35 base, plus 9 before you wore the Chain Mail, and 35 base, plus 7 after.

Ah, I can't help then. I have no idea why it wouldn't be picking Ctrl up, I'm pretty sure this worked on previous versions of Windows I've tested on.

Oh I see - thanks, I misunderstood and thought 35 was your total of which you were getting +9.

Btw, if you play on http://angband.live you can suffer from the same keystroke problems as everyone else, rather than suffering alone (namely browser shortcuts - I think everything else is fixed now)

Really interesting - can you play with graphical tiles there?

It's worth noting that 35, +9 is actually scored as 62, because to_hit bonuses are scored s 3x their actual value. (The same doesn't hold for ac or damage.)

Ahh - good to know!

Unrelated - Do the level feelings take into account monster drops? I'm guessing the monster drops are determined when the level is created since the drops seem to the same if the game crashes.

Edit - so I read in some other posts that to_hit isn't worth much? Wondering because I found a ring of accuracy that has +15, which I probably would have worn otherwise.
