Could you send us the output of xmodmap after running Wing with the use
system keyboard X11.app pref off and the UK keyboard in use? Could you
also send ~/.wingide2/error-log ? These should be sent to support at
wingware rather than to the list. One possibility is you have the Wing
preference to fix the tiger option key bug disabled. We'll be able to
tell from the error-log.

What you've done is select the US keyboard for Wing and Wing only, but
all option / international keys won't work because X11.app overwrites
Wing's changes to the X11 keyboard setup.
