A fix for VNC keyboard problem with AIX and CDE

- On AIX host in VNC client I type "date"
but see the following echoed
("d" echos "d", "a" echos nothing, "t" echos "v"
and "e" echos "f") and then the shell responds
ksh: dvf not found
- On web found that xmodmap command seemed to be the
problem. The file ~/.vnc/xstartup runs
/usr/dt/bin/Xsession. Created file Xsession.VNC
by copying Xsession and commenting out the line
Then had xstartup call Xsession.VNC. It worked; the
keyboard problem disappeared.
- But this fix is a hack. Does anyone know the
proper way to either fix xmodmap for AIX or
prevent Xsession from running it for VNC?
