Does the T keystroke show anything remotely like:
KeyPress event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x3400001,
root 0x5f, subw 0x0, time 8472257, (146,84), root:(156,142),
state 0x1, keycode 28 (keysym 0x54, T), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (54) "T"
XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (54) "T"
XFilterEvent returns: False
and what does dumpkeys show as the coding for the keycode that is
returned? In the above case:
$ dumpkeys -l | grep 0x0054
Your ~/.Xmodmap wouldn't have something like:
keycode 0x54 = <something_unwanted>
thereby reassigning the key?
Do you have a /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Xmodmap, or /etc/gdm/Xsession which
executes an xmodmap <some_file>?
("sudo egrep -nr xmodmap | /etc grep -v xml" is a crude way to see if
there are any other players.)
If that info doesn't cause a penny to drop, then posting your results
may do some good.
