That's only part of the problem, and we could easily deal with it if it
was consistent.  The real problem is that it's done differently in
different keymaps.  The default keymap in the kernel maps Shift-F1 to F11,
but the default keymap loaded by loadkeys maps Shift-F1 to F13.

I'm looking at the source of dumpkeys now.  I think it's possible to read
the mapping using KDGKBENT ioctl.  I'm adding this to the TODO list.

That's what I normally do.  Or I set "ru1" keyboard, which does the right

You mean that mc killed the config file?  Yes, it's a major problem and
needs to be fixed.  It's already in TODO.
