Believed to be fixed in rawhide now and for a while.  If the bug is still
present, please report to xfree86@xfree86.org first, and reopen here to

XFree86- is not what is in rawhide harald.

The one in RAWHIDE, which is XFree86- is believed
to have fixed the deadkeys problems.  This came _after_ Jan 15th.

Please test latest rawhide first.

Doh, I set this to RAWHIDE again instead of MODIFIED.
Oh well... you get the idea..  ;o)

Adding to blocker bug 185483 and also adding IBM confidential group.

Oops. I am sorry for these changes. I searched on the wrong bug list and
mistakenly made these changes. Removing from blocker bug 185483 and also
removing IBM confidential group.
