Interesting. Let me clarify though. Indeed, I am using the G-keys in xemacs,
but I am using them thru the Logitech macro mapper. For example, my G1 key
is mapped to Control-F1. No problem there. But, the point of the G keys, I
thought, is so that we don't have to tie-up by F-keys or any other keys for
that matter. I've already mapped to my commands all of the standard keys
(including the use of control , shift, and alt); now I would like to use the
G keys. So far, I cannot map the G-keys directly to an xemacs command.

Could it be that the keyboard driver maps those keys some esoteric
feature and don't let it through to XEmacs? From the very little I
have just learned about the keyboard by surfing the net it seems like
the G-keys can be used in gaming to define different kinds of
macros. So the driver is likely to catch the keys!?
I have had similar experience with mouse drivers. Mouses with many
buttons etc comes with a driver that allows you to map the buttons to
different features. With XEmacs I often have to disable the default
behavior, as defined by the driver, tide to the middle button. As an
old X-windows user I like the middle press just to be sent to
XEmacs. Nothing else.
Maybe you are experiencing something similar with the G-keys? Either
you can bind them to some keys that XEmacs do recognise or just
disable any special treatment on them? But I'm just a standard
keyboard user ...
