Make sure that the key you designated as the multi-key really does return that keysym!
My ~/.Xmodmap contains:
! Use the right windows key as the Multi-key.
keycode 0xffec = Multi_key Multi_key
! Use the left windows key as the Meta toets
keycode 0xffe7 = Meta_L
Use xev(1) to check what symbols the different keys really generate. Then edit
~/.Xmodmap to suite your taste and call 'xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap' to apply the
changes. Make your X startup repeat that to make the changes permanent.
