You don't have a german keyboard :)
The "]"-Key is AltGr+9 there, so Ctrl+] is Ctrl+AltGr+9 and this could be a wrong generated keycode. In the standart-cmd-windows-terminal Ctrl+AltGr+9 generates a "]". I think it's not the right one. It should be something like "^]" or similar. Windows doesn't create the right keycode. Switching to the english/us-keylayout resolves the problem. Ctrl+] it's a terrible key-combination for german and someting other non-english? keyboards.

Dealing with multiple language keyboards is a *serious* problem in user interfaces. VNC has similar issues, where keystrokes that show up with a UK keyboard one way or on a serial console to Xen show up the same way,but transmitted over VNC turn out as if the keyboard were from the US.
