I haven't been using the spare machine much lately. So I hadn't noticed until last week that since upgrading to the emacs 23.1.1 on Ubuntu Karmic koala, every time I press the Scroll Lock key -- the key my KVM uses to switch to the other computer -- with focus in an emacs window, emacs beeps and complains that the key is unbound.
That was a problem I thought I'd solved long ago, an easy fix in .emacs:
(global-set-key [scroll-lock] 'ignore)But in emacs 23, it wasn't working any more. Emacs listed the key as "<Scroll_Lock>", but using that directly in global-set-key doesn't work.
The friendly and helpful (really!) crew at #emacs found me a solution, after some fiddling around.
(global-set-key (kbd "<Scroll_Lock>") 'ignore)
