My problem had to do with Amaya obeying the XFree keymapping rather slavishly
(as it probably should), which meant that CTRL-keypresses produced additional
characters such as cent sign etc.

I'm tossing in my modified xmodmap, which I edited by removing the definitions
from the third column for each key a-z. I hope it helps.

Naturally, you'll have to adapt my Viking keyboard layout to your
Frog^H^H^H^HFrench one ;-)
