i'm still w/out a clue - loaded the modules you suggested, still 
nothing. awaiting lightning bolt or cartoon light bulb above my head.

fortunately the newest pdp (0.12.3) reports keypress events in the xv 
window (thanks for this feature, by the way), so this takes care of my 
immediate problem.

thanks anyway,
