Description Andrew J. Schorr 2004-02-12 21:10:11 EST
Description of problem:
The problem is that when you login to an Xfce session from
gdm, xmodmap is run twice if the user has a $HOME/.Xmodmap
file.  This is because gdm first runs xmodmap, and then
/usr/share/xsessions/xfce.desktop directs gdm to invoke
startxfce4 which calls /etc/xfce4/xinitrc which then
runs xmodmap again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
login to an Xfce session from gdm with a $HOME/.Xmodmap file

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a $HOME/.Xmodmap file that will give bad results if
run more than once
2. login to an Xfce session through gdm
3. notice that the keyboard mapping is messed up
Actual results:

Expected results:
