I noticed the problem as well, but have been too busy to report it properly:
The left Windows key (I'm using a German laptop keyboard as well) broke
when upgrading from 4.3.0.dfsg.1-4 to -5, no icewm upgrades have been
involved. This is most definitely related to the updated XKB data pulled
from XFree86 CVS.
