Command + L Locks Windows Desktop

Does anybody have a way to prevent a Windows machine, acting as the synergy server, from locking if you press the command + L shortcut on a mac client machine?

Command/Windows key + L on windows locks the desktop

Command + L on mac is a common shortcut to access a location bar within apps

Didn't seem to happen on Synergy 1, but I had the left alt key mapped as the command key for my mac machine.

I resorted to disabling the lock desktop shortcut on windows. 

Save as a .reg and run:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableLockWorkstation"=dword:00000001
