If you put a comment line into .Xmodmap file as: 
!Page Left 
NOTE no space between "!" and "Page" sourcing this segfaults every time. 
If you write 
! Page Left 
than everything sourcing works fine! 
Comment 3 Henrique Martins 2004-11-18 18:56:23 EST
I don't think the space is important.  Any line with 11 characters
before the new line seems to do it, i.e.:
will do it, but
will not.

There may be other combinations that work.
