Hi there,

I was just reviewing my xmonad.hs when I came across the NumlockMask.
This is used to tell XMonad where the NumLock key is, because it might
influence ModMask. I recompiled xmonad using the default, and indeed:
If ModMask isn't explicitely set, ModMask doesn't work *when NumLock
is on*.
Is it possible that your NumLock is on (which is it by default even on
Sun keyboards)?


PS: Now I messed up installation. After moving back my old
configuration xmonad keeps crashing on me with "Illegal instruction
fault." Luckily I have a backup because I'm in a workshop and don't
have the time to debug this issue.
