The Xming builds include debugging code which prints the windows messages
generated by each keypress. Install Xming (with installer and copy the
standalone binary to the install directory), start Xming
Xming.exe :1 -multiwindow -logverbose 10
and keep an eye on the debug messages. The real home key produces:
winTopLevelWindowProc - WM_*KEYDOWN
winWindowProc - Message WM_KEYDOWN wParam 0x24 lParam 0x1470001
winTopLevelWindowProc - Message WM_KEYUP wParam 0x24 lParam 0xc1470001
winTopLevelWindowProc - WM_*KEYUP
winWindowProc - Message WM_KEYUP wParam 0x24 lParam 0xc1470001
