Sorry about the slow answer.

I know about this problem, but I do not know how to fix it.
Something has changed between kernel version 2.6.11 and 2.6.12,
which breaks the fn-key.

With 2.6.11, the patch, and my keymaps it works ok.

With 2.6.12 pressing fn-up leads to the following sequence of key
events delivered to the X-server: <fn press> <fn release> <up press>
<fn press>.  Obviously there is no way to work around this using
key-maps.  The key-repeat works without pretending that fn was
released, thus the following events for the up key are delivered to
the application as pageup.

Help in fixing this would be very welcome.

All the best,
