MACOSX: Unable to save/load using numbers on AZERTY keyboard

It isn't possible to load (or save) games using Ctrl 0-9 (or Alt 1-9) key combination using a AZERTY keyboard layout. It might be due to the fact that numbers on the main keyboard can be accessed only by using the shift keys ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AZERTY ).
The situation occurred with both The Dig and The Legend of Kyrandia, but could probably be reproduced with other games. Other ways to load/save (F5 key when available, accessing the menu by clicking the intended part of the screen) works as expected.
Mapping the keyboard to a American QWERTY through System Preference does _not_ help.
The problem occured on a Intel Mac Laptop with an AZERTY layout. The machine was running OS X 10.4.8 and ScummVM 9.1 (Universal).
Please notice that Mac's AZERTY layouts are slightly different from other PC's French AZERTY layout, and probably closer to the Belgian AZERTY layout. Numbers are unaffected by those difference, but symbols under them are. Here is the list of symbols appearing on my keyboard, each with the number above it.
