Hello Jeffrey and thanks for your ideas.

After a fresh run of slocate -u I found nothing suspicious in
locate modmap.  Same for locate keymap.

There is no existing ~/.Xmodmap.

The problem exists for all users.  I even created a brand new user Bill
and poor Bill has the same problem.

Anything else I can look at?
