grabbuttons() depends on it yes, though otherwise grabkeys() would
depend on initmodmap() which could be considered similiar subtle ;) My
current favorit is something like:

unsigned int getnumlockmask(void);

which replaces the global numlockmask. Thus, we would do something like:

unsigned int numlockmask = getnumlockmask();
unsigned int modifiers[] = { 0, LockMask, numlockmask, numlockmask|LockMask };

in grabbuttons and grabkeys, then all subtle stuff is gone imho.

What do you think?

Kind regards,
