I just tried this with my test Debian system. After updating to what was
supposed to be SDL-1.2.9, and building Tux Paint from CVS, it didn't
work for me either. With a Russian keymapping, I just got one of two
uppercase characters )-:
So I grabbed SDL12 from CVS and, after installing some tools
(automake1.9, nasm etc.), I built a replacement libSDL which worked fine.
I can't provide any instructions on how to do this properly (I guess you
build your own Debian package and then install that) because I know very
little about binary package systems like Debian (after horrible beginner
experiences with non-Debian systems long ago) - I use Gentoo, and get to
curse everytime something that *used* to work gets broken :-)

Does the same on Windows - I'll take a look at it,
