XDMCP Keyboard Layout Problem

I have a laptop computer with Debian Sarge and a desktop computer with Debian Etch on a home network. A couple days ago I enabled XDMCP access on the desktop computer. I was able to use the laptop to log-in to the desktop computer just fine for two days.

Now when I log-in, I find that the keyboard layout is wrong. For example, When I press u, I see 4 appear on the screen.

Does anyone know what is causing this?

XDMCP Keyboard Layout Problem - Solved

The cause was the Number Lock key had been engaged. I don't know why there is a Num Lk key on my laptop computer, but there is one. When I pressed it the problem went away.
