I've noticed that with XWin 1.7.3 (and perhaps earlier versions; not
sure), the key combination CTRL-SHIFT-0 (zero) doesn't generate any
events. CTRL-SHIFT-1 thru -9, alphabetic keys, no problem -- just not zero.
This came up as I was testing the new rxvt-unicode release; it has a
special "ISO14755" entry mode, where you hold down CTRL-SHIFT and type
the unicode value (in hex) of the codepoint you want, and then release
the CTRL-SHIFT keys -- urxvt inserts the correct character. This works
-- as long as the unicode value doesn't contain 0.
e.g. CTRL-SHIFT 3-b-2 gives 'beta'
CTRL-SHIFT 2-0-a-c should be the Euro symbol, but the '0' never has
As I said, you can verify this behavior (this missing 0 events) using
xev, so it's not specific to rxvt-unicode.
Is this a bug, or a designed behavior, in XWin?
