KDE & Gnome keyboard mangers override the basic xorg settings anyway so use their features to set up your national variants.

The xorg problem probably lies in the pc105 (how many keys does your keyboard acually have?) and xkbvariant sections.

See for a brief rundown and /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst for a list of alternatives.
