Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 2.4.0-4

When logging into Gnome 2.4, i get the following error message in a window 

Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The XFree86 Project, Inc

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb

It leaves me with a strange keyboard configuration. Upgrading to XFree 
does not remedy. Changing keyboard layout with the Gnome applet yields the 
same error

nazgul@demonhide:~$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "de", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "de", "", ""
nazgul@demonhide:~$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
   layouts = [de  de]
   model = pc105
   overrideSettings = false
   options = []

ii  gnome-control-center   2.4.0-4                The GNOME Control Center 
for GNOME 2
ii  xserver-xfree86        4.2.1-12.1             the XFree86 X server
ii  xserver-common         4.2.1-12.1             files and utilities 
common to all X servers

Peolple on irc #gnome suggested that the control-center package should be 
compiled without
xkb. Some could resolve this issue by recompiling without xkb.

Old bug obsoleted by new version of libxclavier, of GNOME (2.4->2.6 and
even 2.8 now), and of xfree.
See gnomezilla for more details.
