It seems to work for me w/ Wing 3.1.8.  Could you specify what version
of Wing you are using, on what OS, with what keyboard personality, and
what file type this is in (Python, plain text, ...)?

Also worth checking if you've got a custom key binding in preferences
for any of the above key strokes, tho this seems unlikely and in most
cases shouldn't matter.
