X.org 7.2 keycode bug

Hi all,

I just upgraded to X.org 7.2 (FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE/amd64) and the upgrade itself 
went flawlessly.  However, I have a media keyboard with several extra keys 
that I've xmodmapped to F13-F35.   The xmodmap configuration has worked for 
~5yrs. through both XF86 and x.org 6.x.  But after the upgrade, I noticed a 
lot of the keycodes returned by xev for the extra keys had changed, and two 
pairs of those keys now generate the same keycode.

I know this isn't exactly a pressing issue right now--but I'm definitely 
willing to find a fix if someone would point me in the right direction (i.e. 
source/configuration files I should look at).
