Yes, this filtering is enabled and needed only when QSET feature was
activated. And is needed only for machines which need QSET feature.

In both cases important is KE_IGNORE, which fully drops those events. So
IIRC we used KEY_RESERVED as it is irrelevant which key code is defined for
dropped events.

This is bug in X Server or so. You would need to remap keycode to
something different as a workaround for X Server.
