No keyboard messages when viz window is attached

I've got a visualisation plugin project I'm working on and I've encountered some odd behavior when the window is docked/attached to the winamp main window.

When the window is independent of the main window everything is happy; the window proc receives WM_KEYDOWN, WM_LBUTTON, WM_SIZE etc.

When the window is docked the mouse/window etc events are still received but WM_KEYDOWN and WM_KEYUP are never seen.

Is this the standard behavior? Some searching around didn't find anything (or much at all talking about attach and detaching of the viz window). I checked if DXGI/D3D was doing anything strange with the window but tried using an empty window and that was the same.
