Marking broken (status null/blank) bugs in xorg with no activity in a long time as fixed. Please reopen if you think it's necessary, but first do a search if a similar bug report is already filed and in a NEW/ASSIGNED state. These bugs do not currently show in most search results as they do not have any status.

Sorry for this janitorial spam, you know where to send hate mails to when your inbox gets full of bugs you're subscribed to.

Not to be closed. Still need to check.
Comment 7 Daniel Stone 2007-02-26 09:33:40 UTC
it doesn't make sense, and it's still possible to bind them, you just have to be careful about it.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

The stated problem was that n > 1 keycodes were bound to one keysym, which broke because XKeysymToKeycode doesn't return multiple results.  This can just as easily happen with any other keys (and does happen even today), so apps just have to avoid using XKeysymToKeycode and walk the map themselves to ascertain which keys (plural) to grab for a given keysym.

 -> WONTFIX, should document this somewhere though so people won't get surprised
