[h-e-w] Problems with interactive commands and composite keybindings

I have a couple of frustrating problems related to keyboard input:

1. Interactive commands, such as "query-replace" are not working properly.
I type "M-%" ("Alt-Shift-%") to begin query-replace command.
Then I type a substring to replace and a replacement in the minibuffer.
Then the Emacs highlights found characters and
I type "y" to replace first match.
And at last the Emacs just inserts the letter "y" instead of replacing.
Here is a screenshot of these steps: (54KB).

2.  A similar looking problem occurs while typing composite
keybindings with single key at the end.
I.e. "C-x RET C-\" works fine, but typing "C-x RET r" makes
nothing but inserting a symbol "r" in a buffer.

Both problems are in GUI version only.
In console Emacs, started as "c:\emacs\ntemacs22\bin\emacs -nw" from
the command line they are not appear.

My current version is "GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of
2007-08-18 on TPAD", but the same occurs with
"GNU Emacs 22.2.1" downloaded from

The OS is Windows XP Pro SP3 and it runs on an HP laptop Pavilion dv6220
with AMD Turion 64 Mobile processor.

Thank you for any help on these issues.
