Ahh cool. I use CVS/Git versions rather than official packages (on my 
distro - Mandriva - there is no official support yet, even in Cooker, 
but lots of people are using it none-the-less as I have now created RPMs 
for them.

To be honest tho', seeing as I fixed the SHIFT+Backspace problem with a 
keycode, I guess I didn't notice when it was fixed :)

Thanks for clearing that up tho'. :)
