Bug#280579: xlibs-data: [xkb] jp106 backslash/yen issue

Package: xlibs-data
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8
Severity: minor

On a japanese keyboard, there is one key of the Yen sign, and one for
the backslash. While in EUC-JP and SHIFT-JIS encoding, Yen and backslash
are mapped to the same character, it is not the case in UTF-8.
Thus, i'd like the Yen key to return a Yen character, not a backslash.

Keycode for the yen key: keycode 133 (keysym 0x5c, backslash)
Keycode for the backslash key: keycode 123 (keysym 0x5c, backslash)


Note that on the same keyboard, The windows key gives keycode 115
(keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), which i think is not expected. Shall I file a
new bug for that ?
