Did either of these work with an older version of acpi-support? Also could you
please try both without running X and preferably without running hal? This
suspiciously looks like the key is interpreted twice with only one being
correct and we need to figure out who's interpreting it incorrectly. Of course
doing it the other way round is also interesting, i.e. stopping acpid while
running under X and pressing the keys again.

I will add these files again. Upstream's changelog gives a reason for removing
these files that doesn't seem to fit, so it might have been by accident anyway.
