my keyboard LEDs stopped working with xorg-7.3. For example shiftlock 
and numlock. The functionality is ok, just the LEDs don't work. I have 
tried Driver "kbd" and "keyboard" but neither changes the behaviour.

I have two keyboards connected, the internal one from my Laptop and an 
external Apple via USB. When I quit X, the LEDs are working fine.

What am I doing wrong?
