Actually looking at /etc/X11/Xsession.d/foo (forget which one)
it is probably that XKB is active as well (apparently they don't
play nice together). Do you (OP) have keyboard model setup or an xkb
Unfortunately I'm still trying to figure out how to do this without
invoking whatever monster it is that made the Xsession people prevent
loading xmodmap and xkb at the same time.
And that's my crabbing done for the day. Got it out of the way early,
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or
strangle cute bunnies or something. -- Michael Devore
