I reinstalled gentoo, and now, my pound key isn't working, as I use a British keyboard.
I hit shift-3, and all I get is a 3, where I'd usually get a pound sign. It's not a case of the wrong keymap being loaded, as the hash key is in the right place, and so is the @ symbol.
I usually have a good idea where to look for problems in my config files, but this time, I have absolutely no idea how to fix this.
This is the contents of my "/etc/locales.build" file. It is apparently not enough to make my keyboard operate in the correct fashion:
If it helps to debug things, it seems that an accented A is placed next to every pound sign in irssi, althought that might be a problem with irssi, and not my xorg config. http://cache.binaryroulette.com/_17
