This is a bizarre problem. 

    - By forward key I mean the key above the right key and right
      to the up key.

    - By backward key I mean the key above the  left key and left
      to the up key.

I have installed various debian/ubuntu versions on X41 and X61
and never had a problem.

However with on my new X200s with Kubuntu 9.04 the xserver does
recognize the backward key but not the forward key.

When I run xev 
and pressing backward I obtain keycode 166
pressing forward does not return any keycode!!!

Is this a xev bug and xorg bug or a X200s problem.
