Like I said it the bug report. I've set it to Right Alt but it
still acts like a Left Alt.

should have been working like a left alt.

And I said what is in that file, and it has ralt_switch in it.
Please carefully read my bug report. If you don't understand it,
please don't close it but ask questions instead.
