If I'm correct the client needs to reserve the keys before it can
receive them. It's not yet very well documented I think. If I'm
correct it works like "client_add_key A" or screen_add_key S A". Just
try it and evt see client_functions.c to be sure.

We did make a change in the protocol requiring clients to register
keys. That was not the case in the past, all clients received all
keys, so there was no telling which one was going to respond and what
would happen :)
