I'm running XDarwin 1.1 in rootless mode, and I haven't
messed with xmodmap at all. When I start xemacs, it
gives me the following warnings:

(1) (key-mapping/warning)
The meanings of the modifier bits Mod1 through Mod5 are
determined
by the keysyms used to control those bits. Mod1 does
NOT always
mean Meta, although some non-ICCCM-compliant programs
assume that.

(2) (key-mapping/warning)
Two distinct modifier keys (such as Meta and Hyper)
cannot generate
the same modifier bit, because Emacs won't be able to
tell which
modifier was actually held down when some other key is
pressed. It
won't be able to tell Meta-x and Hyper-x apart, for
example. Change
one of these keys to use some other modifier bit. If
you intend for
these keys to have the same behavior, then change them
to have the
same keysym as well as the same modifier bit.

(3) (key-mapping/warning) XEmacs: Mod1 is being used
for both Mode_switch and Alt.

I think that's the modern version of the warning
mentioned <a
href="http://www.jwz.org/gruntle/autobogotification.html">here</a>.

This should probably not be the default configuration.
