(resubmit of patch sent to rdesktop-devel in 2010-01-15)

The rdesktop-1.6.0 keymaps/ja had some problems, so this
patch fixes them:

- [Alt]+[Hankaku_Zenkaku/Kanji] key didn't work. (should toggle IME)
- [Eisu_toggle/Caps_Lock] key acts wildly.
Before the fix, the key behaved as unconditional Caps Lock toggle
as in US keyboards.
In Japanese 106 keyboard, this key should only toggle Caps Lock on shift.
Plain keypress should just tell IME to transit to alnum mode.
- [Hiragana_Katakana/Romaji] key didn't work.
- Windows key didn't work.

Current keymaps/ja file seems to be a result of ID: 812205
<URL:http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=812205&group_id=24366&atid=381347>
but this submittion seems to be based on ancient IBM JX keyboard.

You can g**gle for ["keymaps/ja" "Kanji 0x29"] for similar fixes
for modern jp106 keyboard in the field.
