I just did a fresh install of fedora 9 on another box and it doesn't have this problem. The problem box is an upgrade by yum from fedora 8 so I guess this might be the cause?
I reinstalled the GNOME group and now the problem went away.
yum groupremove "GNOME Desktop Environment" and yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment".
I think I've found the real cause, it's scim. Once I enabled scim(ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim.conf .xinputrc), this problem showed up; disable it, this problem gone. Sorry for your time
This issue is still present on Fedora 11. Although the fix of yum groupremove "GNOME Desktop Environment" and yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop
Environment" does fix the issue, it is a big step to remove and install everything again.
