Strange.  Doesn't a keyboard layout map "scan codes" to character codes
and all programs receive character codes only?  If there is such a layer
of abstraction, this shouldn't happen.

In order to find out whether it's a TeXworks problem at all, can you
try it with another program?

Can you quit Adobe Reader with Ctrl-q ?

If TeXworks gives different results, it's probably worthwhile to
repeat the test with another program which is based on QT.  I doubt
that TeXworks itself is the culprit.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
