For me this occurs with gb layout and macintosh keyboard, either setting
keyboard to pc105 or layout to us works -- each has its advantages and
disadvantages. Actually it's not quite true (at least in my case) that
nothing can be typed, characters on the top row (numbers, their shifts
and -, = etc) do work. 

See bug number 51003.
