Gnome problem with keymaps

I am having a weird problem with Gnome not working correctly with different language keymaps. I've installed linux, and every once in a while I have to use the Russian (cyrilic) keymap to type up some documents, but it seems that some characters are missing. Also, with the english keymaps, the Function keys (F1, F2 ect..) aren't working unless I get rid of the russian keymap.

However, in KDE, I can switch to either keymap, and everything runs fine.

So what I am wondering, is if there is any way to see what KDE actually does when I toggle between different layouts, and replicate that in Gnome.

Any info would be appreciated.
