I'm experiencing two problems with the keyboard.
Here is a log from using "-d keyboard" where I press all of the problem keys once in the order of "< > | alt+e": attachment/ticket/1465/t-o.log Here is the output of "xmodmap -pke": attachment/ticket/1465/t--.txt
First problem is that the keys < and | are translated to > key. This problem only happens if I attach a shadow display, not regular xpra display.
Xev output for these three keys are all the same
KeyPress event, serial 35, synthetic NO, window 0x4600001, root 0x44f, subw 0x0, time 73765672, (-289,434), root:(994,470), state 0x1, keycode 94 (keysym 0x3e, greater), same_screen YES, XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 60 XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (3e) ">" XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (3e) ">" XFilterEvent returns: False
Second problem is that some modifier keys show up in xev but don't actually work. This problem happens whether I attach a shadow display or regular xpra display.
Control and shift have no problem. Alt has a problem.
KeyPress event, serial 35, synthetic NO, window 0x4600001, root 0x44f, subw 0x0, time 73724840, (-89,410), root:(1194,446), state 0x0, keycode 134 (keysym 0xffea, Alt_R), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 0 bytes: XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: XFilterEvent returns: False
It shows up in xev but doesn't work in combos, pressing something like Alt+e will act as if I had pressed Alt then e separately. And when I assign a key to a modifier key with xmodmap, which I have to do for the Super key to ensure I don't activate Windows shortcuts, the same thing will happen, shows up in xev, but doesn't work in combos.
keyboard debug log
Can you please include the matching server "-d keyboard" log?
And any other useful information from wiki/Keyboard.
(I have converted the logs to attachments so they don't bitrot)
-d keyboard log from client
-d keyboard log from server
Keymap_info.exe run on client machine
keymap.py run inside xpra session
setxkbmap -print run inside xpra session
setxkbmap -query run inside xpra session
xmodmap -pke run inside xpra session
xmodmap -pm run inside xpra session
Sorry about disappearing, I've uploaded a bunch of files that the keyboard page asks for. I don't have any special input method and the bug is still present with --no-keyboard-sync.
Not had time to take a look, sorry. In the meantime, keyboard grabs may help you - see #1195
See also #1482.
Sorry for taking so long to look into this. The problem was limited to this particular combination:

AltGr workarounds we have to apply on ms windows, see #923 and #1119 (ancient tickets: #7 and #62 - original changesets: r1755, r1756, r1757, r1758, r1759, r1760, r1769, r1770, r1771)
@vival: please close if this works for you.
A recent regression in the 3.0 series had similar symptoms (this is fixed in 3.0.9
