Control bug: stuck scrolling

No screenshot or the like because this is purely dynamic.

I have had this problem rarely with CW3 and could always resolve it by hitting every key that could possibly be relevant.  This time, however, I wasn't able to find any way to resolve it--I was stuck perpetually scrolling right.  I didn't have a lot of time to experiment as this was the last mission and a cannon tagged my HQ.

CW3 also exhibits this with the right mouse button--you can get in a state where the mouse moves the map rather than your cursor even though no button is down.

Note that I have observed a relative of this in Windows itself--key events can become lost during video state changes and Windows will continue to behave as if the key is still pressed.  Hitting the offending key always clears it.
