Well, i have spent almost one whole battery-cycle on this problem in the plane
last month, and tried numerous times to get this fixed previously too. Having
no { or } or [ or ] or | or \ or ~ is a quite daunting way to do coding,
especially when one has only one mouse button and thus no copy/paste :/

The fr_new helped there, but it absolutely baffles me to see that changing the
XF86Config-4 file doesn't get respected, but maybe this is a new and
wonderfull gnome 2.6 feature ?

Cool, thanks for the hint. I suppose the only problem is he not having pmac
hardware, right ?

Yep, what we really need is to pool together the different knowledges and work
on solving the issue.
