I'm trying to upgrade my laptop to jaunty and decided to do a fresh install. Running awesome 3.2.1 from a PPA.

This is an upgrade from my intrepid install running 3.1-rc2.

The problem is that I can't get the mod4/modkey shortcuts to work. The only one I can get is the modkey-click-drag to rearrange the tiled apps in a tag space.

It's almost like I can't hit two keys at the same time. When I try mod-left/right it will actually move the cursor left/right in whatever app I'm in, as if the mod key wasn't pressed. I know it's doing something though because of the click/drag mentioned above.

I know I can hit two-key shortcuts though since FF can open new tabs with ctrl-t and such.

Any hints on why/how to debug and fix this? Everything is pretty unusable without the modkey.

Thanks
