I'm using the NoMachine provided NX client on Ubuntu 10.10 running on a laptop. I'm connecting to a FreeNX server that happens to be running on openSUSE.

I'm having trouble with keys being incorrect in the remote session. The most noticable example is that when I press up cursor, the screen shot dialog appears instead. As far as I can gather easily, the cursor keys and delete are affected.

It's worth noting that it doesn't display the same behaviour if I dual boot to Windows XP, or from a different machine using openSUSE.

I'm not really sure where to begin looking. Any suggestions?
