So it turns out that the problem I was having with the shift key in 10.3.6 are actually tied to, of all things, Terminal!
Yes, with Terminal running, the shift key in Photoshop doesn't work properly. Nor does non-proportional resizing in QuickTime Player.
I have absolutely no idea why this is the case, but it is. I'll see what I can find out, but preliminary tests are as follows:
- Renaming my .tcshrc file didn't change anything.
- Removing the com.apple.Terminal.plist prefs fixes it.
- It's something in the bottom of the prefs file. I'll post an update when I find it.
Update: "Secure Keyboard Entry" (see "File" menu in Terminal) seems to be at fault here. Enabled, QuickTime Player can't non-proportionally resize with the shift key held down. Disabled, it works beautifully.
