Yeah, I have some troubles too. To wit, my 'alt' key went away on me.
I don't actually use the apple alt key, because it's small, and it
also makes it hard to do mouse button emulation.
It still works fine in console mode, where I remapped it in the
console/ directory, but I'm not sure what one does to get it working
again in X.

Yep, and everything was working just fine.
Here is the problem:
I have 125 mapped to Alt in console/bootmap, and that sufficed for X
as well. Now, however, X is interpreting 125 as 115, so I had to add
that to my Xmodmap:
keycode 115 = Alt_R
add Mod1 = Alt_R
(Thanks to Colin Walters for sharing some config files!)
Strikes me as being a hack, though, and I'd like to figure out what
the real problem is - what changed underneath.
