I am still a very fresh mac owner and so I have no idea what ADB
keyboard stands for.  Mine seems internally to be connected via USB,
if this is relevant.

My problem is: "fn" has no effect at all on my machine.  It is fine
for me if it emits no scan code, but then it would be quite useful if
"fn-up" would emit a different scan code from "up".  Currently it does
not do this.

Well, I have one of these newer PowerBooks, but then the trackpad
does not work under Linux :-(

Thanks for the clarification.
