This problem happens in rawhide(20061004), too.
$] system-config-keyboard
Starting graphical mode failed.  Starting text mode instead.

I have this problem with FC6.

When I try to run it:

$ system-config-keyboard
Échec lors du lancement du mode graphique. Lancement du mode texte.
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/azerty/fr-latin9.map.gz
assuming iso-8859-1 cedilla
assuming iso-8859-1 acute
assuming iso-8859-1 diaeresis
assuming iso-8859-1 brokenbar
assuming iso-8859-1 threequarters
assuming iso-8859-1 currency
assuming iso-8859-1 onehalf
assuming iso-8859-1 onequarter

Text mode works.
When I try to launch it from GNOME I have the dialog box asking for root
password but nothing more.

I have no AVC with SELinux (enforced mode).

Linux athlon1600 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 14:51:46 EST 2006 i686

If it mays help (another bug?):

$ system-config-keyboard --version

    raise GetoptError('option -%s not recognized' % opt, opt)
getopt.GetoptError: option -v not recognized

All others system-config-* work.

It works for me.
And the second thingie is not a bug -- it clearly states:
getopt.GetoptError: option --version not recognized
