ignore it, since the wire-format doesn't give you the ability to send them to
the client

maybe what happens is that as the driver detects it, it maps to a different
keyboard layout to fake >255 keycodes? In which case you'd get the keymap
notifies, but for some reason the events seem to get swallowed then.

What driver do you use? 
Can you attach a logfile and your xorg.conf?
Preferably to a bug report, it is easier if all the information is in one
