System: NetBSD skywalker.sceen 1.6.2_STABLE NetBSD 1.6.2_STABLE (SKYWALKER) #0: Fri Aug 27 03:24:22 CEST 2004 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/SKYWALKER i386
Using IceWM 1.2.14 (from pkgsrc or source), if a window is focused, and the
num lock is on, the win95 keys are unusable (they normally popup the main
menu or window list). The keyboard is a 105intl keyboard with french layout.
When in such a case (window focused + num lock on), the function
YXApplication::handleXEvents() (in src/yxapp.cc) isn't called. The
problem was not present in IceWM 1.2.13, but there has been lots of
changes since. Upgrading to IceWM 1.2.16 doesn't solve the problem
(this seems to be specific to NetBSD and perhaps to NetBSD 1.6 only).
