[davidw@debian.org: Bug#111905: Upgrade to X in testing breaks alt keys]

Is this the linux keycodes issue again?  Can someone help me to write an
XFree86/PowerMac keyboard FAQ?

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.1.0-5
Severity: normal

This is a bad bug report, seeing as how I don't really understand the

I upgraded to the latest X in testing, and the apple key no longer
works as an alt key.  I have it mapped like so:

keycode 125 = Alt             

in my boottime.kmap, which should cause it to 'work', both in the
console and in X, like it was before.

Untill recently, all was working fine.  I've tried reconfiguring and
so on, but to no avail.
