Then, as I said in my message to my least favorite thread, it is a problem
with the event translations.

That is your smoking gun.  For some reason all your Xresources have been
clobbered.  There are many places this could have happened, but they're all
conffiles or user files, so all I can do is tell you to grep for xrdb.
Start in /etc/X11/* and $HOME.

A command like:

xrdb load /dev/null

would certainly accomplish the result you described.
