Summary: Keyboard remapping of shift+backspace key does not
work
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.4
Version: Final
Platform: 64bit
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.4
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: bnc-team-xorg-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: joonpyro@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: xorg-maintainer-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---


User-Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; Edition Next; en)
Presto/2.9.186 Version/12.00

The shift + part of the backspace key (keycode 22) does not correctly
processed. Specifically, whatever I put for the shift+keycode 22, actually
pressing shift+keycode 22 just types keycode 22 (without shift)

For example, with the following .Xmodmap:

keycode 22 = grave asciitilde dead_tilde asciitilde

when I press shift+backspace, I get ` instead of ~, and

keycode 22 = s S dead_tilde asciitilde

when I press shift+backspace, I get s instead of S.

I remember this did not happen in openSUSE 11.3, and with Chakra linux, it did
not happen.

Thank you,
Joon

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remap keycode 22 to other key
2. press shift+keycode 22
3.
Actual Results:
get whatever character assigned to keycode 22

Expected Results:
get whatever character assigned to shift+keycode 22
