STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. Add the Fremantle tools repository: "deb http://repository.maemo.org/
fremantle tools/free" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tools.list should do it.
2. Install x11-utils using apt-get.
3. Run xev from a terminal.
All key-events received should be outputted onto the Terminal, by xev, as it
should be xev that is catching them when it has the focus.
The window behind (or nothing, if there is no window) receives the key presses
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
Patch attached to xev which sets the InputHint required for it to recieve the
keypresses when it has focus, like it should do.
It is my understanding that this bug is relevant as packages from the tools
repository are expected to be installed on the device. Correct me if I am

Created an attachment (id=1526) [details]
Patch to set InputHint to true, so that keypresses are recieved by xev.
Thanks for the patch. :-)
Hm. Would have been nice to have this bug in internal bugzilla.

I was told that Dev platform bugs are handled here, but as you wish. :)
Was this patch included in official Maemo5?

No, it wasn't.
So then it is good candidate for CSSU.
