[SOLVED] Ver 4.8 xmodmap High CPU Usage

Passing on some hard-won knowledge here:

Since upgrading to version 4.8 (in Debian Wheezy), I had problems remapping some keys on my eee pc 901's keyboard.  In 4.6 (using Debian Squeeze), I had a script that ran as an xfce autostart that used xmodmap to remap the keys.  Upon upgrading, when said remapping script was run as an xfce autostart, said script took about 5 minutes to run, with the attendant high cpu usage.

I found this to be unacceptable.

So, I put a call to the remapping script in "/etc/X11/Xsession", near the beginning of said file.

End of problem!

IHTH someone!
