Then how do you change the CTRL-] used to yank 'xm console' out of a domU?

I'm using a Danish keyboard where CTRL-] is in fact CTRL-^.
The ^ key is also used for ¨ and ~, so it's a "dead keys only" key.

CTRL-^ works fine when I'm sitting in front of the PC.
But it doesn't work over any kind of remoting, including SSH.

My servers are in a colo, so I'm usually remote :-)..
My solution so far is to nuke the SSH client, log in again, ps -ef,
kill xenconsole.
