Just complementing information, when X starts I got some "invalid key
in shortcut" message, i took a look at the code and the problem seems
to happen here in src/wmrootmenu.c:

    ptr->keycode = XKeysymToKeycode(dpy, ksym);
    if (ptr->keycode==0) {
        wwarning(_("%s:invalid key in shortcut \"%s\" for entry %s"), file,
                 shortcutDefinition, entry->text);
        return False;

XKeysymToKeycode seems to return 0 for it, but after wmaker starts
up, if I just change shortcut it works fine.
