Re: does the Debian Keyboard Configuration Project still exist?

Yes they are (though for "special" keys they are usually the same for the same 
hardware, regardless of keyboard. I do know of exceptions though). In this 
case however, the problem is that the key in question is generating the wrong 
keysym, and that can't easily be fixed using keysyms. (Many XFree86 
configurations set both backspace and delete to generate the Delete keysym, 
which is the source of the problem.)
