[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#624684: Bug#624684: xfce4-terminal: stops to accept keyboard input

Hi again,

I found the trigger of the freeze. Xfce4-terminal always freezes when I
press the "menu" key (between AltGr and the right Ctrl key) while the
terminal has the input focus. There may be other affected programs, but
I didn't find any yet.

I am using a german keyboard. While running xev in an xterm I get this
when I press the offending key:

| KeyPress event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
|     root 0xb0, subw 0x0, time 283483239, (639,374), root:(640,400),
|     state 0x0, keycode 135 (keysym 0xff67, Menu), same_screen YES,
|     XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
|     XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
|     XFilterEvent returns: False

My /etc/default/keyboard contains:

| XKBMODEL="pc105"
| XKBVARIANT="nodeadkeys"
| BACKSPACE="guess"

Removing the nodeadkeys variant doesn't help. Additionally, my
~/.xsession (which I use to start my X session) contains the following
to map Caps Lock to Left Ctrl:

| xmodmap -e "remove Lock = Caps_Lock" \
|         -e "keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L"    \
|         -e "add Control = Control_L"

Please let me know if you need more information or if there are other
things I should try.
