[Xbindkeys-devel] xbindkey issue when using 'setxkbmap' or 'xkbcomp', se

I have a number-pad only USB keyboard I'm remapping to unused keysyms. 

The script I'm using is here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/25377097/

If I use xbindkeys to attach to `KP_End` then it works on BOTH keyboards when everything is default.

If I remap the keys (even if I remap back to 'KP_End') then xbindkeys doesn't trigger for the number-pad only keyboard BUT still triggers for the main keyboards KP_End key.

This seems to imply that once I remap the keys with 'setxkbmap' or 'xkbcomp' then xbindkeys doesn't see anything.

(Note: xev still shows the right keysyms before and after remapping)
(Note: xbindkeys -s does show the commands and xbindkey -k does show the keypress, it's only when running it breaks)


Has anyone seen anything similar? Is this a known issue?
