Programmer Dvorak layout in KDE


Hello, I recently switched my keybard layout to dvp, but I'm having issues in KDE (version 4.8). In dvp, numeric pad is in phone keypad format (that is, the top row is 123 instead of the more common 789), and by pressing shift you can get hex digits A, B, C etc, plus some handy symbols. I have two problems with this:

1) numbers are still in qwerty order (ie: hitting "1" gives me "7")
2) hex digits are not available

If I choose "ATM/phone keypad" from advanced keyboard settings I get the correct numbers but still no hex digits.

By adding the following to xorg.conf
Code:
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
    MatchIsKeyboard "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "evdev"

    Option "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option "XkbVariant" "dvp"
    Option "XkbOptions" "compose:102,numpad:shift3,kpdl:semi,keypad:atm,caps:shift"
EndSection
I get the desired behaviour in kdm, but as soon as I login I get the reversed numpad and no hex.
Can somebody help me please?

Edit: I forgot to say that I'm using Sabayon Linux (Gentoo based).
