Just to put this one to bed, hopefully! loadkeys works correctly when
the 2nd hunk of the above fix is applied through the equivalent 'sed':
sed -i -e '326 s/if/while/' src/loadkeys.analyze.l
I can only assume that I somehow am screwing up the application of the
patch, though I've no idea how. I'll try to watch out for the next
release candidate and test to make sure the next release works as
Thanks for your support on this issue.
