Bug#514053: A way to reproduce it

Hi again,

it is indeed a timing issue.


$ echo "(set -x; sleep 1; xmodmap /home/jojo/.Xmodmap ) &  xterm " > /tmp/session
$ chmod +x /tmp/session
$ startx /tmp/session

I get the broken AltGr behaviour, while with

$ echo "(set -x; sleep 2; xmodmap /home/jojo/.Xmodmap ) &  xterm " > /tmp/session
$ chmod +x /tmp/session
$ startx /tmp/session

it works just fine.

Maybe it’s not a GNOME bug after all, but some problem with late
initialization of the auto-detected evdev devices? Please re-assign back
if you think so.
