I'm sorry; I didn't finish answering your question. Here's the keyboard
section from my XF86Config file:

Section "Keyboard"
   Protocol        "Standard"
   AutoRepeat      500 5
   LeftAlt         Meta
   RightAlt        Meta
   ScrollLock      Compose
   RightCtl        Control
   XkbKeycodes     "xfree86"
#   XkbTypes        "default"
#   XkbCompat       "default"
#   XkbSymbols      "us(pc101)"
#   XkbGeometry     "pc"
#   XkbRules        "xfree86"
   XkbModel        "pc104"
   XkbLayout       "us"
   XkbKeymap        "xfree86(us)"

IIRC, originally there weren't any comments in here, but I looked at
another XF86Config file that didn't have those entries, so I commented
them out hoping that'd make a difference. It didn't.
