[dev] (dwm 6.0) Mod1-, Mod1-. (next/prev screen) keybindings don't work

I have recently been looking for a tiling WM and like dwm so far. I have
one problem I can't figure out. The default keybinds for next/previous
screen (using Mod1 and the comma and period keys), as well as the "send"
function (Mod1-shift-, or .) don't work for me.

I've tried the following:

   - Debian repo version of dwm (v6.0)
   - Compiling on my machine with the tar.gz file (v6.0)
   - Modifying the keybinds to use XK_minus (-) and XK_equal (=),
   recompiling the tar.gz version. The actions don't work on these keys either.
   - Assigning other actions to comma and period. These actions DO work.

Presumably these experiments indicate that the problem is unrelated to my
keyboard settings. So, I guess something funky is happening with the
"focusmon" and "tagmon" functions indicated in config.h.

I am running the Crunchbang Waldorf (Debian) distribution. uname -a yields:

> Linux crunchbang 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.41-2+deb7u2 x86_64
> GNU/Linux

My machine is a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420.

One note, I always receive this warning on install:

> dwm.c: In function ‘keypress’:
> dwm.c:1087:2: warning: ‘XKeycodeToKeysym’ is deprecated (declared at
> /usr/include/X11/Xlib.h:1695) [-Wdeprecated-declarations]

I did find a thread about the issue here in the dev list
but confess I didn't get much out of the comments in that thread. Should I
try that patch?
