This is where I'm having problems.  I have the keybindings I want in
~/.Xmodmap and "xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap" in ~/.xinitrc, but the keybinding
never seems to get read when I start KDE, or maybe it's getting
overwritten.  Is it in the wrong startup script?

My initscripts seem to have gone wonky, so I boot to init-level 3,
login, and then startx.

ASCII silly question, get a silly ANSI.
