1. I'm using Atari keyboard
2. The buffer seems to be full after two key strokes
So I'm keen to believe it's a bug in the CE.

The IKBD controller and protocol has no limits on the number of concurrent keypresses (unlike USB keyboards), but because of the keyboard matrix you can experience "blocked" keys (certain combinations of keys blocks other keys) and "ghost" keypresses. Ask any PC gamer :)
