Yeah, that didn't seem to do it.

Some more details:

- A console login on this machine seems to work fine.
- Changing the keyboard has no effect.
- I can connect remotely to the kdm process, and login normally using Xnest 
from a remote machine (XMDCP).
- I see this message in the Xorg.log file:
SetKbdSettings - type: -1217146730 rate: 30 delay: 500 snumlk: 232
- starting X from the command line (skipping kdm) results in the same odd 
keyboard behavior
