This patch makes XDarwin ignore the caps lock key when checking for the vt switch key. It will switch whether caps lock is pressed or not.

If the user's switch key preference contains caps lock, then caps lock is not ignored. However, the preferences dialog doesn't allow caps lock to be used anyway.

    This isn't really true. The preferences dialog doesn't correctly show a number of keys including Tab and Caps Lock, although it can successfully use these keys to switch. But this isn't really this patch's problem....
