I found a bug in my hack of the file which didn't 
manifest itself in 4.1, but did in 4.2.  I had a trailing ',' which was 
causing Mathematica to hang on startup after the chched KeyEventTranslations.m was 
created (second launch with the buggy file.)  I also discovered that the 
file I was trying to share had been chmod'ed to 400.  I am not sure if that 
is a daemon running, or scp which did it.  It's open now, and I'll keep an 
eye on it.

I'm attaching it as well, just in case.
I put it here on my box:



@@resource KeyEventTranslations
(* Modifiers can be "Shift", "Control", "Command", "Option" 
	For Macintosh: "Command" = Command Key, "Option" = Option Key
	For X11: "Command" = Mod1, "Option" = Mod2
	For Windows: "Command" = Alt, "Option" = Alt

NOTE: I Hacked this for my purposes.  I find it more natural. There
may be problems.  It comes with all the warranty that GNU software does.
