Bug Description

Hi,

the Gnome Keyboard Preferences (Menu System -> Preferences -> Keyboard) has a Keyboard Layout Options page, which offers 10 different ways to treat the caps lock key.

Unfortunately, an option to completely turn that annoying capslock off is missing.

Workaround: Put
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
in ~/.xmodmaprc, but that's certainly not intended by the Gnome team.

regards

A new version of xkeyboard-config is available in both Lucid and Maverick and we are wondering if this is still reproducible in any of those versions, May you please test and give us of feedback about it? Thanks in advance.
