It works, here is a short summary of two methods:
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
# Option "XkbModel "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "se"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
One comment: XkbModel "pc105", is fully valid, but errors out when
starting X if not commented out. Strange!
BTW: Is it of any use to report bugs to Hurd-related Debian packages
(and Hurd-specific ones, like random-egd) to email@example.com? Or
should they be reported upstream, or elsewhere? I'll try to solve some
bugs myself, but the success-rate will vary of course. We also have the
people at Arch Hurd, but then I need install that too to see if their
packages have the same problem.
