Description

Several of the keycodes are wrong for my keyboard. The physical keyboard is a Dell Mini 12 laptop with a QWERTY keyboard, and the Gnome keyboard preferences are set to a Generic 105-key (Intl) PC and a USA keyboard layout.

setxkbmap -print gives:

xkb_keymap {
xkb_keycodes { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)" };
xkb_types { include "complete" };
xkb_compat { include "complete" };
xkb_symbols { include "pc+us+inet(evdev)+level3(ralt_switch)+compose(menu)" };
xkb_geometry { include "pc(pc105)" };
};

The attached patch fixes the keycodes for the accelerators. I'm sure this breaks things for other keyboards and other locales, but X input is deep magic and I've got no clue as to how to do this internationalizably.

This has to be fixed globally. Let's leave that for 1.0 unless we can manage to generate a patch earlier.
