Control key not working after installing KDE4
 
I just installed KDE4.3 on Gentoo. I was previously running XFCE. Ever since the install, my left and right control keys don't work, and I have no idea why. They still work in XFCE.

I don't get a keypress event in xev, this is what I get the first time I press left control after running xev:

Code:

FocusOut event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0xe00001,
    mode NotifyGrab, detail NotifyAncestor

FocusIn event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0xe00001,
    mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor

KeymapNotify event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  4294967181 0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0
          0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0

And this is what I get every other time:

Code:

FocusOut event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0xe00001,
    mode NotifyGrab, detail NotifyAncestor

FocusIn event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0xe00001,
    mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor

KeymapNotify event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  2  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0
          0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0

(I've bolded the difference)

Can anyone shed some light on this? I've done a ton of searching and can't find anything relevant. I found a bug that appears to be related to gnome and the "find mouse pointer" setting, which produces the same results, but can't find a similar setting or bug in KDE.

Thanks! I'm dying to get KDE on my laptop, but having no control key is a deal breaker!!

UPDATE: The issue appears to be with compiz-fusion (which I already had installed). If I disable/enable some of its plugins, it randomly releases the control key. I haven't figure out what causes this yet. I don't have compizconfig-backend-kconfig installed, because it doesn't appear to be compatible with KDE4. I don't know if that's causing this issue or not..
