Description of problem:
On my white macbook I used to set my right "apple key" (ie the "windows" key) to access to important chars as @ # [ ] ~ that are in 3rd level.
I used to do that in the gnome "keyboard preferences" -> "layouts" -> "layout options" -> "key to choose 3rd level" checking the "right win" checkbox.
It has always worked (at least since FC7, when I bought the mac), but stop working today after upgrading via F12-Beta DVD and then net-upgrading to the latest packages versions.
2 strange things happens:
1) the combination "right win" + "any key" doesn't produce any output (or cursor movement)
2) the thing works as expected inside gnome-terminal!!!
I've also tried making a new fresh user with newly created gnome settings but the problem is still there.
This is my smolt profile:

actually, the two files i really need are:
- the output of "xkbcomp -xkb $DISPLAY -"
- the output of xev when you trigger a 3rd level key (or try to anyway).

output of "xev" when pressing/release the 3rd function key

Thanks for following this bug!

> 2) the thing works as expected inside gnome-terminal!!!
verified. works in gnome-terminal, xev and xterm. Doesn't work in gedit and firefox. Matthias - any hints?
command to reproduce: setxkbmap -layout it -option "lv3:rwin_switch"
rwin + q should produce '@'.
I've tracked this down to trouble with consumed modifiers when e.g. ISO_Level3_Switch and Super are mapped to the same modifier.

the gtk2 update solved the problem for the gtk2 apps, but not for Firefox.
What's next step? Should I provide more infos?
Thanks a lot!
