inputtext onkeyup closing window

I am experiencing some really strange behavior that I can't seem to figure out.  I have created a listener javascript function to capture enter key presses, it looks like this:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function submitListener(e){
        var keynum = 0;
        if (window.event){
            keynum = window.event.keyCode;
        else if (e.which){
            keynum = e.which;
        // Here we check whether the Enter button was pressed
        if (keynum == 13){

I have designated the function to target this actionFunction:
<apex:actionFunction action="{!saveAndRunQuery}" name="apexDoQuery" reRender="myData"/>

I call the function in this apex:inputText tag:

<label style="margin-right: 50px">Filter by Code Number or Code Title:&nbsp;<apex:inputText value="{!searchString}" onKeyup="submitListener(event)"/></label>

For some reason, whenever I hit enter in the textbox, the popup window I am in simply closes.  I was messing around in Chrome developer tools and set an event breakpoint on window.close(), but all it gave me was this line, which is not really descript:

(function() {with (this[2]) {with (this[1]) {with (this[0]) {return function(event) {window.close()})

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Turns out changing the onKeyup event to onKeypress resolved this for me.
