Sorry for the long delay in dealing with this bug and thank you for the detailed bug report. This has uncovered a serious bug which has been there for many years and may have had all sorts of undesirable side effects.

The trivial server side fix is in r11247, and it will be included in the next stable update.

And since I was there, I improved the code a bit more:

Thought: maybe we should keep track of which modifier keycodes are used? (at the moment, when we need to add a modifier, we pick the first keycode that matches)

@fladnag: please close when you have time to confirm that this is fixed (will make new beta builds soon)

Closing as fixed. Feel free to re-open if you still have problems.
