Both my kb at home and work are non-MS 104keys keyboards... (probably
the same brand/model actually, I aint sure ;)

...The left windowskey is a modifier. (Meta_L according to xev)
...The right windowskey is not (MultiKey)

I don't know is this is how it was intended or not, or is a result of
not being a "Microsoft brand" 104kb ...but it certainly gave me no end
of grief while tryign to get my wmanager setup ideally...
