I'm not sure I made myself clear; I'm saying the proposed fix isn't right
either, not because it doesn't fix KDE (which I would have expected,
actually), but because it would force a certain modifier to be bound to
<LWIN> even for people who wanted a different modifier bound to that key.

I have mailed Ivan Pascal, a well-known XKB guru, and pleaded with him for
assistance.  So far he hasn't replied yet, but I'm hopeful.
