I don't like those things personally; I actually have a mostly unused one
lying around (somebody else who didn't like it dropped it here).

I used to have an "internet keyboard" which had an extra key above each F-key
(and therefore half-size Fkeys!), plus a powerbutton (which, unfortunately,
worked). Pressing any of the first twelve gave me a tilde, which I presume
is default when it's not recognised. I'd expect your keyboard to also just
send a higher numbered keycode. Isn't there any output at all from those?
