AltGr broken with Android physical keyboard

Using AltGr with a physical keyboard with Android behaves very strangely and
doesn't really work.
To begin with we get Alt_R instead of ISO_Level3_Shift when pressing the key.
When then pressing 2 on a Swedish keyboard we expect a "@" to be sent. However
instead we get:
* Left Shift down
* "@" down
* "@" up
* Left shift up
Not sure what is going on. Seems to happen in both Firefox and Chrome though.

Brain fart. This is what Xvnc fakes because the wrong key was sent for AltGr.
Web Access sends the @ just fine.
So the issue is that the wrong symbol is sent for AltGr. We have no way of
knowing if it is Alt_R or AltGr, so the browsers need to be fixed here:
