tilde in X

I'm having a somewhat weird problem with the key with the tilde sign in X. It works outside X and in Bluefish, but not in any other program or terminal.
This is my keyboard section in XF86Config:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc102"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "se"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"

Is it a "swedish" keyboard or a "us" keyboard? You might try

option "Xkbmodel" "pc105"

Yes, it is a swedish keyboard.
I'll try pc105, I didn't think any number higher than 104 could be used.
