Generated XF86Config use an Xkb definition.  If none is in XF86Config,
I guess it uses /etc/X11/Xmodmap (that is, it uses the old mechanism
instead of newer Xkb).

This does not work for me shift-* prints *, and shift-- reduces xterm
font size :)

I use in keyboard section:

        XkbRules        "xfree86"
        XkbModel        "pc102"
        XkbLayout       "fr"
        XkbOptions      "ctrl:nocaps"
