Error activating XKB message on Desktop on FC2

Hi: I installed FC2 as an upgrade from FC1 this morning. Upon logging into desktop from any account, I get an error message box as indicated below:

Error activiating XKB configuration.

Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

If you report this situation as a bug, please include

--The result of xprop -root | grep XKB (indicated below)
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "". ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "". ""

--The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/XKB (indicated below)
layouts = [us]
model = [pc105]
overrideSettings = false
options = [ ]

Okay, what can I do to get rid of the error message?

Thanks, Ken.
