[PLUG] What happened to Super_L

I have been using xmodmap to assign the "Windows key" as the multi key for 
entering extended characters.  

I had this script in ~/.kde/Autostart


xmodmap -e "keysym Super_L = Multi_key"

And it has worked for a couple of years.  Today it stopped with the error 

xmodmap:  commandline:1:  bad keysym target keysym 'Super_L', no corresponding 
xmodmap:  1 error encountered, aborting.

Sure enough, /usr/share/X11/XKeysymDB doesn't contain Super_L and I couldn't 
find anything in there for the Windows key.  Any idea what happened?
