You may have several problems. The first comes from the 1: package (there are some problems with multimedia keyboards), so please try the package 1:2.6.1. Also, there are several setting for your keyboard in the capplet (Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro, Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro (alternate option) and Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro (alternate option2)).

Also, you may try to change your setting from itouch to logicordless in your InputDevice section.

For information, these are my X keyboard settings (I'm using a Logitech Cordless Desktop Navigator):

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Logitech Cordless Desktop Navigator"
        Driver          "Keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "logicordless"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "fr"
