If this is about testing, I'll gladly help. I use a German SUN Type6 keyboard 
(only one control key, Compose key, SUN keys instead of Windows keys, no menu 
key) with German layout and swapcaps. I also used to use an application that 
crashes due to a regression in Wine's keyboard handling it seems - could be a 
nice test app.
