rev.9799 and revision.10272 from 
http://user.informatik.uni-bremen.de/fld/UnixAos/ are installed in 
Linux Debian on a 64 bit Lenovo ThinkCentre.

Three lines in HotKeys.XML differ.  Output from Diff.Do is here. 

In the Oberon subsystem of 10272, F1 and F2 keys are inactive with the 
distributed HotKeys.XML.  Ie. the three lines are commented out as in 
the Diff cited above.

F1 and F2 remain inactive if the three lines are activated (commented 

That hints that the failure in 10272 is independent of HexKeys.XML.

Configuration.XML is updated in 10272.  I'm not trying to use the 
Configuration.XML from 9799 in 10272.  So I wonder whether the Oberon 
subsystem changed from 9799 to 10272.

Can anyone confirm that the F1 and F2 keys in the Oberon subsystem of 
10272 work or not?

Thanks,                               ... P.L.
