I have commented out two lines in my XF86config like that:

  # To set the LeftAlt to Meta, RightAlt key to ModeShift, 
  # RightCtl key to Compose, and ScrollLock key to ModeLock:

      LeftAlt     Meta
      RightAlt    ModeShift
  #    RightCtl    Compose
  #    ScrollLock  ModeLock

Works for me.
