Fedora Core 4: Wierd problem with keyboard mappings

I have Fedora Core 4 installed on my DELL Latitude D600 laptop and worked good for a while. Since I have been playing with GNOME themes I am facing a weird problem...

Every time I reboot the laptop letter "p" does not work. Function key (Fn) for "*" works with the same key so it's not the hardware.

The only way I figured out to fix the issue is by choosing "Desktop->System Settings -> Keyboard" and choose "US English" setting. It works till I reboot.

Any ideas?

Can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

That is were that main keymaps are defined, mine is like this

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "en_US"
