Can you run guacd with debug logging turned on, and see whether there are
log messages referring to unmapped keys / keysyms?

I am using a Japanese hardware keyboard with 106/109 layout.
What matters is what keyboard layout the OS is set to use, not the apparent
layout of the hardware keyboard (which is purely cosmetic). The difference
between a hardware keyboard with layout X and a hardware keyboard with
layout Y is paint.
