When NVDA crashes (and before it recovers from the crash), all keys are passed through. When it comes to laptop users (or those who use caps lock as a modifier key), this makes caps lock turn on even though it is not intended to. It would be very useful to have an alert (a beep, for example, or a speech alert when NVDA is done recovering) to let the user know of caps lock being turned on, or intercept the NVDA modifier keys even when NVDA is recovering from a crash. I personally would go with the latter, but I assume it would take too much time and effort. So, even the first one will be fine.

NVDA now intercepts the NVDA modifier keys even while frozen. This was implemented as part of the new input framework in 062be1b.
