I once had problem similar to this where I had inadvertently turned on
(while playing bzflag) some keyboard feature that I didn't want or need
(accessbility?).  I forget exactly what it was, but I could no longer
log in with GDM.  I could kill gdm, however, (at the console, after
logging in at the console), startx, and get into gnome, and that's how I
fixed what I had inadvertently broken (in gnome).

This doesn't sound exactly like your problem, though, because when you kill gdm,
your keyboard doesn't work at the console anymore, if I'm understanding
