I guess Ethan isn't on this list, so...

As I said before, "XkbModel" "macintosh" is broken for me, I need to use

This configuration 'works' for them because Xkb is in fact disabled:

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:

This actually works for me:

        Option          "XkbRules"	"xfree86"
        Option		"XkbModel"	"macintosh_old"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"us"          
        Option  	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"

We'll hopefully soon be able to use the "pcxxx" model anyway.
