Description of problem:
This problems occurs if one has altwin(left_meta_win) added to the keymap.
Then Win+key does not generate Meta+key in Emacs, but H-S-M+key.
The newsgroup article
explains the problem, a solution is also given.
BTW, what's mod1 to mod4 anyway?

I have a feeling I just fixed this with a patch from debian in
emacs-21.4-1.  Could you please test the latest emacs in rawhide?
