[winswitch] xpra and the letter A

Just for fun I ssh'd to my server and ran 'xpra attach :100' locally
and back through my ssh tunnel.
The letter A/a worked on that. But when I backspaced to my prompt
(which I think would cause a BELL),
xpra attach died with
$ xpra attach :100
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "localhost:12.0".
cannot import dbus.glib notification wrapper:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name
org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files
mmap enabled using /tmp/xpra.k81xUq.mmap
Attached (press Control-C to detach)
The program 'xpra' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'XkbBadKeyboard'.
(Details: serial 807 error_code 143 request_code 140 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
