Hi,

The 'numlock' modifier for linux seems to be inverted.

If I start an app with numlock physically 'on', keydown events report
numlock 'off' in keysym.mod.

If I start an app with numlock physically 'off', keydown events report
numlock 'on'. TextInput events for numbers are also generated with numlock
physically 'off'.

Bye!

Actually, ignore the above 'numlock' problem - this is happening with all
apps, not just SDL ones. Anyone heard of this?

After the keydown event triggers, numlock is off, right?
