This version entered unstable on 2004-12-16; this error has never been
reported before and I cannot reproduce it, so there is surely a problem

Please read in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.xhtml#ltkeys explanations
about using xev and send your xev output when pressing Alt+a and Alt+A.
And also the result of
$ xprop -root | grep XKB
