extra buttons lost after upgrade


I have an inspiron 8200 laptop and could use the four extra keys (play stop rew fwd) in X11 until last apt-get upgrade (testing).

In /etc/X11/xkb/keycodes/xfree86 they are still aliased from I01..I04 to keycode 129..132.

In /etc/X11/Xmodmap keycodes 129..132 are still assigned to letters (xvzb for the xmms player).

Yet it doesn't work anymore, the letters are not even printed in an xterm. No message, no beep.

What has changed? Keyboard? For some strange reason I already had to change from 104keys to 105keys to get back the <>| key.
