cocksr8: I'm running Alien Breed through Boxter (The MacosX dosbox wrapper)
Perhaps Boxter is the problem, as we haven't encountered the problem.. You can try running the DOSBOX mapper (ctrl+f1 on a PC, I guess the apple button is the equivalent here ;) and rebind the keys at will to suit your needs.

Hope this helps!
