Okay, I did this.  The only part of the result that's different is on the
second line:

  KeyRelease event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1600001,
    root 0x35, subw 0x0, time 1404496059, (198,393), root:(501,532),
    state 0x0, keycode 103 (keysym 0xff57, End), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 characters:  ""

nearly all those numbers are different, which is to be expected I think
(tho I'm not sure what all those things mean but I think they related to
where the window is on the screen at the time?)  but the 3rd line is
identical on both machines, which is the part I would've expected to be
different, no?
