ok, seems to be a bug with xorg 7. no clue what to make of it though.
i think this is more X's fault than xfce, and someone will have to
file a bugreport at them, as it also affects a couple other key

on the other hand, all your keyloggers are now rendered useless, and
your passwords containing sleep, volume up, and web browser characters
are now safe.
