[Win32] No keyboard input at the menu start screen
Windows XP SP3, Doomsday build 465. After I get to the start menu screen in Doom E1 M1, there is no keyboard input until I alt tab out of the game and back, only mouse input. In addition, no monsters show up until I start a new game a second time. Weird, I have never seen this behavior before in Doomsday. Addons: resource pack, texture pack and interface pack for Doom.

I was working on a friend's computer the last couple of day's and I installed the same Doomsday build on his much newer system: HP a6223w duel core AMD and Windows Vista Home premium, and noted the same behavior, which disappeared when I install an earlier build. I even used revouninstaller to to clean it before a reinstall. ( I had copied my build over directly from my external USB drive where my Doomsday is installed: J:\Games\Doomsday I Used Revo because even after I deleted the directory and installed Doomsday with your installer, in the addons path I was seeing my addons path: J:\Games\Doomsday\Snowberry\addons instead of C:\Program Files\Doomsday\Snowberry\addons. This persisted even though I manually deleted those entries in the Snowberry interface. I tried again after working on the system a day latter, after reboots, of course, and I was able to delete my drive entries. Some how the entries were saved despite deleting the whole game folder. Is it possible that entries still existed in the registry or in memory? Usually Revo Uninstaller's more agressive modes does a pretty good job of cleaning up.
