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?
Comment 2 Aaron Lu 2008-10-23 02:15:44 EDT
I reinstalled the GNOME group and now the problem went away.
yum groupremove "GNOME Desktop Environment" and yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment".
Comment 3 Aaron Lu 2008-10-23 04:33:52 EDT
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.
