Is this thread BTW suitable for gnumed-bugs or is -bugs preferred for problems 
in gnumed, rather than cross-platform support for gnumed (i,e, should this 
thread be instead on gnumed-devel)?

Anyhow I did also find the following, do people think it's orthogonal to my 
problem on Snow Leopard?

14- The ALT key does not work with Apple's X11 in Tiger.
(Thanks to Andreas)

In applications like gedit, gnumeric, xchat, gnome-terminal....the following 
keys are not working:

[ { } ] \ | € 

The cause of this is Apple has mapped the option key to both the X11 mod1 and 
Mode_Switch key symbols and gtk doesn't support this if the XKEYBOARD extension 
is not present.

*One way to solve this is to do a simple shellscript:

cd /Applications/Utilities/
sudo mv X11 X11R6
sudo $EDITOR X11

/Applications/Utilities/ +kb $*

sudo chmod 755 X11
