It has nothing to do with Emacs: it is done with xmodmap, so it is an
X binding not an Emacs binding. This is something I defined years ago
(globally, so for normal user and root user) and always worked. I did
not change anything in .xnodmap or in .emacs. So this should not be
happening, but it is.
