I've got an addition for the motif FAQ that just solved a problem I've been
wrestling with for a month - it's really an addition to #303  "Why are only
some of my translations being installed?"

On certain platforms you cannot use an upper-case key in combination with the
Shift modifier.  For example,

    Meta Shift <Key>F:   find-in-list()

will not always work because the F is capitalized.

The reason for this is because some platforms (such as IRIX) distinguish upper
case and lowercase keysyms. Using Jamie Zawinski's xkeycaps program
(http://www.jwz.org/xkeycaps/), you will see that on Solaris the "F" key just
has one keysym: "F" On IRIX they same key has two: "f" and "F".
