Bug#269052: xserver-xfree86: keymappings lost after a few keystrokes

Package: xserver-xfree86
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-6
Severity: normal


when configuring my keyboard using xmodmap, the server loses these
mappings after a few keystrokes and also switches part of the keyboard
off so they donŽt even generate any more events. IŽve come to this
conclusion after reading bug #268363.

Restarting X several times, immediately running xev and checking for
keycodes. Generating keycodes stops for some keys after about 5-20
keys. I assume the keyboard is not broken because leaving X and
restarting gives the same result, everytime.

The keys affected are (only!): Escape, Menu, both Windows keys, PageUp,
PageDown, Beginning, End.

After removing the xmodmap from my .xsession and reconfiguring the
keyboard for us_intl instead of us only in the vain hope that this will
result in a useful keyboard layout, I have the keys mentioned above all
working with no missing keycode events, although with sometimes strange
effects. The strange effects is that now I have no idea what some of
these keys now do, save that Escape, PageUp, PageDown, Beginning and End
work as expected in VIM (part of my now lost reshuffling was to make the
keyboard more useful...).
