Using version 4.3.0.101 Xvnc hash key gives wrong output.

This seems to have gone wrong at the same time that you
cured the back-tab problem, which was between versions
4.3.0.5pre2 and 4.3.0.5pre3 that you sent me on 7th and
8th August.

This is the output from xev when the hash key is pressed:-

KeyPress event, serial 24, synthetic NO, window 0x600001,
root 0x3f, subw 0x0, time 2006634128, (-280,584),
root:(550,608),
state 0x0, keycode 12 (keysym 0x33, 3), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: "3"

KeyRelease event, serial 24, synthetic NO, window 0x600001,
root 0x3f, subw 0x0, time 2006634308, (-280,584),
root:(550,608),
state 0x0, keycode 12 (keysym 0x33, 3), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: "3"

    Mmmm. I certainly don't see this one Tony.

    Can you tell me what flags you are passing to Xvnc and are
    you executing an setxkbmap commands ?

    Also are you using -kb or not ? Even so, I don't see it with -
    kb or not too though.

    I am starting Xvnc with the vncserver script and passing
    -depth 16 geometry 1270x968 -kb

    I am not executing any setxkbmap commands.

    Odd, i'n'it?

    I have just set this up on another machine and sadly do have
    the problem with the 3 and # on this too when using 4.3.0.101.

    It's a real shame because this has the fix for the back-tab
    problem.

    Is there anything that I could do to help you debug it.

    I seem to be having a similar problem with a danish keyboard
    - here the shift-, yields a : (should be ;), shift-7 gives ?
    (should be /) and serveral other mismatches between keys
    pressed and characters entered.
    I run Xvnc as a drop-in replacement from xinetd with
    -inetd -query localhost -once -geometry 800x600 -depth 24

    Apart from that I sometimes manage to get the system to miss
    the key-up event (by pressing two keys almost
    simultaniously) so it keeps the key pressed and keeps
    entering characters. In that case, I can actually enter the
    chars - just in a lot of copies...

    I'm running on XFree 4.3.0.
