Trying to create a remake of Pong and am trying to use Right Control and Right Shift to move the right paddle up and down, moving the paddle down works fine but gets stuck in the move up state, despite my efforts root out logic errors through reviewing and debugging my code and the logic is correct.

This is strange, as the release of the right-shift key triggers the binding for the left-shift release. This issue, however, is not a tkinter issue (which just passes the calls onto Tcl/Tk), as running the following in 'wish' prints "R shift down <newline> L shift up":

bind . <Shift_L> {puts {L shift down}}
bind . <KeyRelease-Shift_L> {puts {L shift up}}
bind . <Shift_R> {puts {R shift down}}
bind . <KeyRelease-Shift_R> {puts {R shift up}}

You can take this issue up with the Tcl team if you want (, however, I ask that you close this issue as third party.

@Devin Morgan, thank you for the report and @epaine, thank you for researching the cause.  I'll close this as third party.
