So the significant difference between the (working) 1.3.0 system and the
two different 1.4.2 systems was the version of the X Keyboard
Configuration Database they were using.
The 1.3.0 system was using xkbdata-1.0.1
The laptop 1.4.2 system was using xkeyboard-config-1.3
The desktop 1.4.2 system was using xkeyboard-config-1.4 (but broken)
So using the xkbdata-1.0.1 data on the 1.4.2 laptop got it working.
Upgrading the 1.4.2 laptop to xkeyboard-config-1.4 also seems to have got
it working so the problem seems to have been broken data in
xkeyboard-config-1.3. This would suggest that the desktop 1.4.2 system
should have worked but I noticed that it didn't have (for local reasons)
a /var/db/xkb (which /usr/pkg/share/X11/xkb/compiled symlinks too) so it
was probably triping over that - I can't actually test and confirm that
For those people who were seeing the problems with native xorg, I can't
immediately see what version of the keyboard database its trying to use
but hopefully this will point you at the likely cause.
