If you remap CapsLock away in OSX (as I do) then it also doesn't work  
(doesn't generate events at all) in X11.app. (It might be possible to  
change this by telling X11.app not to sync keymaps, but judging by  
the odd interactions I've seen in mouse event mapping I suspect this  
would cause even more "interesting" behaviors.  :)
