Maybe it is related to the problems i have with the matchbox keyboard
because of the quite old version supplied with debian.
The debian matchbox version doesn't support layout changing and also not
all characters are send correct with the "shift" option. For example the
"/" and some other characters doesn't work with shift so i modified the
layout to use it with mod1 which works for me. I didn't try ">" but as a
shifted character it could be the same problem.
