      Description

      The easiest way to reproduce this is to login to a SunRay that has
      a US keyboard attached. Start up a simple Java application that
      puts up a TextField. Type a few letters. Then unplug the keyboard
      and plug in a non-US keyboard, eg., German. Type a letter that
      has a different location, such as the 'Y' on German that would be
      'Z' on US. Note that a 'Z' still appears instead of 'Y'.

      After the keyboard is swapped on a SunRay, the first key that is
      pressed causes the X server to notice that the key event from
      the DTU has a different country code, so it reads in the
      description for that keyboard, remaps, and sends out a MappingNotify
      to interested clients. At that point AWT should refresh its notion
      of the keycode=>keysym mapping.
