I see a glitch on the Keyboard for X (not on Mintty),
when I am running this Keyboard Layout

(--) Windows keyboard layout: "A0000407" (a0000407) "Deutsch - no dead 
keys", type 34668816
(--) Found matching XKB configuration "German (Germany)"
(--) Model = "pc105" Layout = "de" Variant = "none" Options = "none"
(--) Windows keyboard layout device identifier indicates Macintosh, 
setting Model = "macintosh"Rules = "base" Model = "macintosh" Layout = 
"de" Variant = "none" Options = "none"

the ALTGR+8 and ALTGR+9 produces {} (same as ALTGR+7 and ALTGR+0)
  instead of the expected []

The Windows Layout is coming from:
https://zauner.nllk.net/post/0014-windows-no-dead-keys/


The problem is not present with the default Windows German Layout

(--) Windows keyboard layout: "00000407" (00000407) "German", type 7
(--) Found matching XKB configuration "German (Germany)"
(--) Model = "pc105" Layout = "de" Variant = "none" Options = "none"
Rules = "base" Model = "pc105" Layout = "de" Variant = "none" Options = 
"none"

What ever this Model = "macintosh" is, I doubt having
ALTGR+8 same as ALTGR+7 makes any sense

Suggestion?
