IceWM has caused keyboard glitch

I have been using Fedora 9 with GNOME desktop. After a few small problems, it has been working really well.

Unfortunately, I decided to tamper with it and load IceWM.

Now, when I run bash, the 'b' key does not work. It works on GUI-based apps, e.g. gedit, geany, but not anything running within the shell.

The 'b' key does not work in IceWM or GNOME when running bash.

However, for another user on the same machine, who has not yet used IceWM (although the option is avaiable to them) the 'b' key still works when using GNOME.

(Also, I can't do F10 to call the menu in bash for IceWM, but can for GNOME, which is less than helpful).

Any ideas please.
