I just debugged the current cotvnc because I can't send \ and | to the server. Maybe I simply don't understand how this keyboardthing works in cotvnc. When I look at "sendKey" I see that, for Shift-Alt-7 not \ arrives in c but / (i.e. code 47).

    I had similar problems with my custom keyboard layout that uses option for some keys. I fixed this as well as paste problems with the following patch:
    http://www.olofsson.info/cotvnc-misckeyboardfixes.patch

    This patch is much less invasive than the other one available, and works in all applications such as firefox on Linux. I have only tested it againts a linux VNC server so it might break other servers.
