There was a contribution[1] by Heck[2] just before 9.0 that fixed some
instances of Cyrillic key shortcuts. If you can recompile Textadept
without that change, does it still not work? Or perhaps the workaround
listed in the original e-mail may be helpful.

If that doesn't shed light on anything, try uncommenting the `print()`
statement right around line 201 of `core/keys.lua` and run Textadept from
a terminal to see the keypresses that are not working correctly. That may
help diagnose the issue.

I'm afraid I don't know much more about handling different key layouts :(
