      Description

      On Solaris/X11:

      The awt/motif code hardwires the modifier
      mappings so that mod1->Meta and Mod4->Alt, when in fact this
      can be different from system to system.

      i.e. on my system, the opposite is true: mod1->Alt and mod4-Meta,
           so it appears reversed.

      (you can see the mapping by running "xmodmap" in a shell)
