Regrettably, it appears I spoke too soon. I fired up Lazarus again and
the problem is back. I'm compiling trunk for both fpc and lazarus
using fpcupdeluxe. To recap, this is under Linux Mint 19.3 64-bit
(Ubuntu base). I have absolutely *NOT* done any keyboard remapping nor
defined any macros since everything last worked correctly. The setup I
have in a LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) virtual machine still works correctly.

I will update both setups, so that I know I am (should be!) running
exactly the same versions of trunk, and report back in due course.
