tkinter Ignoring Certain Key Presses?

I am having trouble getting tkinter to recognize the following key presses-
it seems to be ignoring them alltogether:

Alt F1-F10: FreeBSD 4.x console running XFree86 and cygwin/X (current) connected
to same machine. Works on cygwin/X local to Windows machine and
native Windows.

Ctl 1-5: FreeBSD, Cygwin/X (local or connected to FreeBSD), Windows - i.e.
Does not seem to work anywhere.

Ideas anyone?
