If anyone else runs into this, I was able to fix it by running "sudo gconf-editor" then
navigating to "desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd" and editing the "layouts" key to
[pc105] and then setting it as default.  I didn't make it mandatory just in case we have
a different keyboard plugged in, but at least this seems to give it sensible defaults to
hand out.
