> To look into the issue begin in kb.c:update_keys(); far as I can see, handle_key() calls XBell(), when a key
has been grabbed, but match_keys() doesn't find it. So it seems
that update_keys() does it's job, but for certain entries get_key()
returns a value which is used successfully for grab_key(), but
does not add it to the key array. Unfortunately the output of
wmiir read /def/keys is just the string as passed to
wmiir write /def/keys but not the ones in the key array, so I can't
tell right now, if there's a scheme regarding the missing entries.
So at the moment I suspect the bug within get_key() or name2key().
