This email is just a reminder for "ago".
The keyhook option should let the keys like win, alt-tab and menu into
the X session, to the x apps. But, it's not happening.
I am using 184.108.40.206-8 version of Xwin. And I started the XWin using the
following command from the cygwin bash prompt.
XWin.exe -multiwindow -clipboard -keyhook &
Checked the key strokes with xev
Win is not going through, the start menu pops up :P
Alt+tab doesn't go through, alt makes xev dump some symbols, but, tab
doesn't do anything.
menu surprisingly works. I mean sends some event in, xev dumps something :P
I am using a MS natural keyboard - if that matters.
Over to you.
