After all, it may not need that much testing.

I checked gtk+-1.2, qt-x11-2.3 and emacs21. They all get the keysyms
using XLookupString. GTK and Qt do not use XLookupKeysym at all and
emacs only uses it for a minor hack (pulling up menus when a
non-modifier key is pressed).

So, I am convinced the old code is out. It would be nice if you could
test my patch to work on your system in order to convince Joris.
