Odd. The current version of kbdptr.c incorporates a different solution to
the problem; it should work correctly, however, as far as I can see.

The patch, in any event, only applied if one uses more than 2 keysyms per
key. A standard U.S. dvorak layout does not, as far as I know (although you
may be using a Norwegian layout, right?).

How does your dvorak layout modification work? If it's based on keycodes, it
will probably not work (keycodes are server dependant). You should be doing
something like 'keysym a = z' or the like, not 'keycode 1234 = z'. (Of
course, running it twice will completely mangle things.)

There is a very old program somewhere in the X11 contrib that can switch
dvorak/qwerty automagically. If you can't find the source, I have it laying
around here.

According to Marius Kotsbak:
