Description David Walser 2005-07-25 22:43:24 UTC
I have some sort of HP internet keyboard, it only has 3 special buttons.  
They're on the top labeled Internet, Suspend, and Information. 
The bug is that the Suspend and Information buttons don't generate any kind of 
key event (according to xev) at all, when they all did in X.org 6.7.0. 
The Internet button still works and generates 178.  The other two buttons used 
to generate 165 and 166.

It seems there was some change in the X keyboard driver. Or, may be, in the kernel.

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