At some point we will have no choice but to add support in Wine to this. 
I am not a major hurt party, as my layout is going to be us,il even 
without the Wine problem, but this is causing people grief. This gets 
worse through the fact that the new X behaviour is actually a better 
one. We are now officially holding people back from moving a behaviour 
that is better for them.

I would volunteer to do it, except I'm unusually busy of late. I know 
that you have messed around with the keyboard code at some time. If you 
have time, I recommend you look at it. If not, I'll try to handle this 
as soon as I:
1. Get some time for Wine (I estimate at least a month - I'm actually 
managing to make business :-)
2. Finish the font dialog rewrite I'm in the middle of.
