Problems with XFree86 3.3.6

After having installed XFree86 3.3.6 from the DeliLinux repositories the key backspace stopped working in X.
In the console Backspace work as it should.

I have tested different settings in XF86Config, nothing changes.
I have run X with both ICEWM and Fluxbox, same problem in both.
In ICEWM AbiWord started with inverted colors...
I have googled and looked in the Deli forum and it seems more people than I have the same problem, but a solution is nowhere to be found!

So, maybe someone can help me or point me in the right direction

Hi MitraMai, What keyboard do you have? Is this a laptop? You may find something here that helps.
Good luck. ;-)
