Sorry for a long quote. I tried to change XkbRules to xorg, now the error
in Gnome is gone, which is very nice. However the problem still persists
in KDE, meaning that the left mouse button will move windows instead of
acting normal. I even tried to remove the whole XkbRules line, but it did
not help. Any ideas? I'd really like to get back to using KDE (altough
Gnome surely looks quite nice).

I also did the ln xorg.lst xfree86.lst stuff adviced in the kxkb message
thread, but to no avail. 

I think that doing a clean install of FC 2 is the The-Other-OS way. I have
been very pleased on ability to fix almost any kind of problem on my box
(including several cases of deleted kernel ;) ) without a need of
re-install of whole distribution. So I'll delay the re-install as long as
possible. :) 

Thanks for the help so far, it has helped me to get this at least
partially working.
