I had the same. It seems to happen only if there is any keyboard

So maybe the problem is that I have both sets of keyboard configs
defined -- one in xorg.conf as prescribed in this thread (to fix the
problem) and one from before via gnome. Any way to clear out the gnome
definition without actually logging into gnome (since I can't do so
reliably at this point)? Or do I have to blow away all my gnome user
