@xaos52: Thanks for the hint. It took me a while to understand how it works under xbkmap - but I finally managed to change the behaviour of the CAPS-Lock-Key!!!
The only thing I don't understand: I've got two laptops (a dell 1501 and a ibm t60) - on both i made a fresh waldorf install and on both machines I tried to modify the keyboard-behaviour with xmodmap (as discribed in post above). On one machine (Dell) it didn't work, but on the other (ibm) It worked. I don't understand that. Does anybody have an explanation (It's no problem - I just try to understand).
It is probably one of these little 'mysteries' that pop up now and then in software. I am sure there is a logical explanation for this symptom, but it is not immediately clear to me neither and it would take an inappropriate amount of time to find out.
For such little things it is best to accept them, find a workaround and move on.
