Please use bugzilla file attachment feature for adding patches, as cut and
pasting them destroys them.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-23 18:36:28 EST
I have forwarded this bug report, and cut and pasted patch upstream to
the xfree86@xfree86.org mailing list / bug report list, where it is awaiting
community feedback in order to ensure that this problem gets good peer
review and a correct fix is found.

Once the proper fix is determined by the XFree86 community, and checked
into the CVS repository, it will be included in a future build of XFree86
and made available for testing.  I will update this report at that time.

In the mean time, if you wish to further participate in seeking a
resolution to this issue, you may also wish to join the xfree86@xfree86.org
mailing list, and participate in developmental discussions concerning
xkb.

Defering for community approved solution.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-30 21:27:26 EST
This is believed to be fixed in the latest XFree86 CVS release.

Please test XFree86-4.2.99.4-20030129.1 from rawhide, and close this
report as RAWHIDE if it now works.  Otherwise please change to ASSIGNED
and report the problem to xfree86@xfree86.org to ensure they fix it before
XFree86 4.3.0 is released.

Thanks.
