Where do you experience this behavior?
I use Lazarus 1.0.8 + FPC 2.6.2 under Win98 and in IDE for me it works 
as expected also in small test application.
With EN keyboard:
- CapsLock=ON: Shift+9=(, same with CapsLock=OFF

> To whom it may concern:
> I've downloaded two versions of Free Pascal, version number "2.6.0"

> In Win98, whenever I turn "Caps-lock" on, the behavior I get is as

> "Caps-lock" key behaves as though it's a "Shift-lock" key.  If while 
> "Caps-lock" is active, if I press "Shift-9", in an attempt to get a 
> "Left parenthesis", I get a "9".  If while "Caps-lock" is active, I 
> press just the "9" key, I get "Left parenthesis".
> This undesirable behavior is the same for all keys that require a 
> "Shift" in order to get the upper character that is printed on the 
> key.  As I stated earlier, this problem does not occur under WinXP.
