Got it, thanks.

In my fvwm2 it means kill. I was talking about customization, not
globalization. :)

Hmm.. Actually I find a lot of inconsistency between the x and text
versions as well as the two modes. I don't have xwpe handy at the
moment so I can't give you examples, but they're there.

I'm using the .20a downloaded from the web page. I just installed the
system from scratch and I have never run make install, so I shouldn't
have any other versions/compiles floating about.

Ah, maybe this option (in addition to using a config file from an
older version) is the culprit. I'll try doing it all from scratch and
we'll see what happens.

Too bad. Buy hey, all the keys are #defined, right? Maybe you could
change the #defines into gobal variables, initializing them with the
default values and then change the config file routines so that the
keymap can be "patched" by using config file directives (kind of like
xmodmap). Sounds like a kludge, though. ;)

Nice one. Doesn't trying to make sense of all that terrible looking
code make your head hurt?-)
