I found the reason, sort of. I changed XkbLayout to "us" and it is OK now. But why? Why it didn't work with the "uk" setting? Considering my keyboard's physical layout (which is "uk") it is weird.

Thanks for your help.

Contrary to what most of us in the UK think - 'uk' is not the country code, but 'gb' is.
Try using the following:
     Option        "XkbLayout"    "gb"

Thanks! You were absolutely right. The funniest thing is I was aware of the 'gb' country code, but somehow I forgot about that... The 'uk' code was too 'suggestive' :)

Kind regards,
