Host Debian Lenny 64 bit, client Windows XP.

The Right Ctrl key no longer works to do things in the Canadian Multilingual Keyboard and cannot be selected as the 'host key'. Reverting to version 3.2.10 cured the problem.

Can you post the scancode of that key? That is, what is the output of xev if you enter this key?

FYI, just installed 4.0.0 and the right control key works fine.

I hope that this test build from the stable tree (please see the Testbuilds page) will fix the issue:
