One question: do you have Num Lock turned on?
Many Solaris applications, and some generic Unix applications, see Num Lock as
an extra modifier; as a result, when you think you're doing Ctrl+Mouse you're
really doing Ctrl+NumLock+Mouse, which has no action associated.
If so, there are three solutions:
* Turn off Num Lock
* Clear the Num Lock modifier [xmodmap -e 'clear mod3'] (but then the
numeric keypad won't work)
* Add the appropriate translations for your applications. This is
relatively easy for xterm; for others it may be difficult to determine. I can
make up some basic ones for the xterm for you.
You can also use xev to see the exact events sent to the applications;
unfortunately, xev isn't included in the distrubtions any more. I can send
you a compiled version if you want.
