    I also have a problem with 2.6.12-rcX and ps/2 keyboard. I would say it's
    the same key we're talking about. It does not work at the console nor in X
    (showkey at the console does not see it). It works with a USB keyboard. My
    "compose" is mapped to the menu key beside the right windows key.

    I do wish they'd fix it, because I use this key (kinda like another ALT key)
    more than my compose key (again, the menu key, not the right win logo key)
