I'm running into an issue with Hegemony Rome that makes it very frustrating to play. When panning the camera with WASD, the keys have a tendency to get stuck.

To reproduce this behavior, do the following:
1) Hold down a camera key of choice, e.g. A.
2) Keep holding down that key, wait a second or so*, then press and hold the opposite key, e.g. D.
3) Release the first key while holding down the second key.

* This seems to matter, perhaps the camera pan needs to get up to speed?

You will find the camera continues to pan in the direction of the first key, even though you are no longer holding down that key.

This effect often occurs when I'm panning diagonally and want to change direction, for example SW->SE.

My system information:

I hope you can fix this!
