* src/keybindings.c (meta_change_keygrab): the mask
display->ignored_modifier_mask wasn't being bound,
due to "<" instead of "<=" (most people didn't notice
as display->ignored_modifier_mask included Scroll_Lock).
Red Hat bugzilla #91301 reported by Youssef Makki
* src/display.c (meta_change_button_grab): make corresponding
change for button grabs.
As a workaround you can configure Scroll_Lock on mod5, if you know how to
play with X keymaps.
