This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i586-suse-linux, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Origin of my problem:
I want to use the left windows key as an alternative Alt-Gr key,
because is's more comfortable on a german keyboard.

Possible with:
xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = ISO_Level3_Shift Multi_key"

This works with all programs, exept emacs/xemacs

Procedure to reproduce it (with a german keyboard):
1) typing for example windows_left-"9" BEFORE invoking xmodmap gives
you the error message "S-9 not defined" in the minibuffer.

2) Use xmodmap as described above.

3) Typing windows_left-"9" or Alt-Gr-"9" on a xterm or any editor
exept emacs/xemacs gives you now correctly "]". On emacs/xemacs you
get for BOTH the error message "S-9 not defined", so there is no
possibility any more to get square brackets or any of the other third
key values on a german keyboard.

You get it also on a knoppix 3.4 (xfree 4.3.0, emacs 21.3), but NOT on an
older Suse 7.2 (xfree 4.0.3). So I suppose, there might be some problem
between xfree 4.3.0 end emacs/xemacs?
