Bug#594089: keyboard-configuration: caps lock keycode problem

The short story is: Tom's keyboard sends all that when he presses caps

press: 0x3a 0xe0 0x66
repeat: 0x3a
release: 0xba 0xe0 0xe6

0xe0 0x66 happens to be the "favorites" key on his keyboard with
internet navigation keys.  I thus believe there's a bug in his keyboard
that needs to be filtered at the kernel level.

The long story can be read on http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=594089

Yes, as I said in a previous mail, squeeze Xorg now interprets the
internet scancodes by default, while it wouldn't in lenny and previous,
thus not showing the bug.
