comment What does this output from xev mean?
@Andrew actually, I can't explain the MappingNotify itself without reviewing the X11 protocol again, but I do see three different keycodes listed above.

comment What does this output from xev mean?
Keycodes in X11 represent physical keys delivered by the kernel to the X server. The X server then uses various mechanisms to map them to Keysyms and then to strings, if needed. A normal keyboard sends one keycode per physical key using standard USB HID or PS/2 keycodes. However, some compressed, simplified, or simply non-standard keyboards can compose various keycodes differently depending on the state like when the numeric keypad is overlayed onto the letter keys. That's done in hardware. Also, sometimes keys like monitor select or sleep don't even generate normal codes, instead ACPI events
