(I am answering to this message; it's the latest I could find regarding
this problem. If there are already better solutions for this I'm all

I have just upgraded to 7.3 as of Oct 13, 2007 on 6.2-STABLE (built Jun

status LEDs however do not reflect the "status change" of the respective
modifier key.
