Hate to be a pain about this, but the description of the bug (with
Mod+x) can be reproduced and has nothing to do with whether the
compositor shortcut was triggered. Try Mod+y (or any other key not
consumed by the compositor) in an xterm.
You can argue about whether the 'x' or 'y' should repeat after the Mod
key was released, but there is absolutely no reason the result should
differ depending on whether the shortcut went to the server or the client.
I therefore still believe that this proposed fix is a serious blunder
and should not be done. The correct fix is for clients to get an
accurate key-down map whenever they have keyboard focus. This proposed
fix instead breaks it in the case that it works (when the client gets
focus) instead of the correct fix of doing something when the shortcut
does not cause a focus change.
If clients respond in unexpected ways when keys change state than this
is a bug in the client and needs to be fixed there.
