Details

I'm using swapcaps (setxkbmap -option ctrl:swapcaps)

When editing any text field (e.g., email body or subject) when I use control-x to cut text, it works (as well as control-a/e/arrows, etc.), but when I then use control-z to undo my cut, it does nothing. However, the menu entry "Edit -> Undo" (which is said to be linked to Ctrl-Z) works...

See also my entry for firefox: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=705527 and its second comment. However, in thunderbird, switching the window does not seem to make the undo action occur...

Just a small test: can you try CTRL-Z in another application, such as any text editor?
Already tested... It works perfectly with Xterm and GEdit for instance.

Also for your information I'm using Awesome WM: awesome v3.4.9 (Smack)

Using the same STR (enter text in subject/to/body, select part of text, cut with ctrl-x), ctrl-z correctly readds text just cut, so works for me using 38.4.0 on OpenBSD/amd64.

Should note that i use a sun keyboard with ctrl and caps physically swapped, so i also use swapcaps:
$setxkbmap -print|grep symb 
        xkb_symbols   { include "pc+us+inet(pc105)+terminate(ctrl_alt_bksp)+ctrl(swapcaps)+compose(menu)"       };

L.I.A.R., 
Is your problem related to bug 705527?
Do you agree this now works (as suggested by gaston)?
