The stderr says "keysym SunF37 is not handled".


I did a little poking around, and found this paragraph on a web forum somewhere:

 For historical reasons, on a Sun keyboard, the keys labeled "Stop" and
 "Again" are registered as F11 & F12, and the keys labeled "F11" & "F12"
 are registered as SunF36 & SunF37.  (The F11 & F12 keys were added to
 the keyboard layout years after F1-F35 were all assigned to various
 keys, so they were added to the end instead of breaking all applications
 written to use the older keyboards.)

Hmmm... I don't have a Sun box to try this on, so this is a bit of a stab
in the dark, but would the following patch work?

This patch looks good. Applied. Jack, have you tried this patch? Can you tell me if it works for you? I can apply it and send a tarball to you if you want.
