I don't know AWT very well, but I would assume that if it were using
similar naming terminology to the rest of xlib, then I think that
dsi_win->visualID; is probably not the correct

Have you tried using the result of this in xwininfo -id ?

Have you ensured that the receiving client has selected for
KeyPressMask and KeyReleaseMask ?

Check with xwininfo -id client_id -all
