How does the location of the startup batch file affect the behavior of
numlock and capslock in xterm?

I for one did peruse the mailing list archives, and did a bunch of
google searching, before posting here.  I saw how things had been
moved from /usr/X11R6/foo to /usr/foo.  (That change makes zero sense
to me, but what the hell, I'm just a luser).  I do not see how that
affects the behavior of xterm, especially capslock/numlock/toolbar
behavior.  Maybe I'm just dense.

Try to see the frustration of the people who are asking these
questions -- suddenly things are broken, and it is not apparent why,
and the cygwin websites say nothing, and the hundreds of mailing-list
messages do not appear to address the questions we have.
