same here, always on boot up / after log into gdm/gnome:

[us@gir us]$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "microsoft", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "microsoft", "us", "", ""

[us@gir us]$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
 layouts = [us]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []
Comment 2 Anthony Clark 2004-05-17 15:31:59 EDT
Also happens if I attempt to change the keyboard layout or layout
options indie the Keyboard Preferences app

Nothing shows up in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, /var/log/messages or dmesg
