Comment 1 Maarten van Leunen 2004-06-27 12:48:53 EDT
Not a Bug.

I changed the "xorg.config" file, added XkbdDisable options (this was
required in older versions to prevent a key-repeat problem).

This seemed to be the cause of the backslash and underscore key not
working. Removing of this option from xorg.config solved the problem
for me.
