xorg keyboard screwed up

Hi all,

I swear I didn't do anything (no, I did not upgrade xorg), but all of a sudden my keyboard is screwed up in xorg:

The following keys now show up as "NoSymbol" in xev, and thus do not work:
Print (Printscreen)
Both Winkeys
The keypad keys only show up as KP_1 through KP_9 and so on... They used to ALSO show up as KP_Home, KP_PageDown, etc (regardless of whether numlock was on or off).

Control + Alt + Function Key no longer switches to the console. It just prints funky characters in xterm.

Here is the relevant part of xorg.conf:
Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Keyboard1"
    Driver      "kbd"

    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
    Option "Xleds"      "1 2 3"

    Option     "XkbRules"      "xorg"
    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc105"
    Option     "XkbLayout"     "dvorak"
    Option     "XkbVariant"    ""
    Option     "XkbOptions"    ""

I have tried sticking in all kinds of options listed in /usr/lib/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst, but nothing has worked. Here is part of my Xorg.1.log:

(**) Option "CoreKeyboard"
(**) Keyboard1: Core Keyboard
(**) Option "Protocol" "standard"
(**) Keyboard1: Protocol: standard
(**) Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
(**) Option "XLeds" "1 2 3"
(**) Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
(**) Keyboard1: XkbRules: "xorg"
(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
(**) Keyboard1: XkbModel: "pc105"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "dvorak"
(**) Keyboard1: XkbLayout: "dvorak"
(**) Option "CustomKeycodes" "off"
(**) Keyboard1: CustomKeycodes disabled
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Keyboard1" (type: KEYBOARD)
