I have the following ~/.xkeybindsrc configuration file in order to remap pasting text inside X11 to F1 and F2, respectively:

"xte 'mouseclick 2'"
    m:0x0 + c:67
"xclip -o -selection clipboard"
    m:0x0 + c:68
"echo 'test test test'"
    m:0x0 + c:69

With this config, when I run `xkeybinds -n` I can see that all key bindings work as expected (e.g., pressing F3 prints 'test test test', etc.). However, when I then just run `xkeybinds` in daemon mode, only the first key binding works, but not the second nor third one.

Does anyone know why this happens or why this is the case? I'm using xkeybinds 1.8.6 from the GNU/Debian unstable repositories.
