The new Xorg will ignore any settings to input devices you set in 
xorg.conf. In order to configure those you need to:

dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

(the new xserver-xorg depends on console-setup)
and select apropiate keyboard model and layout. You probably also need 
to tell it your correct model as I don't think "pc105" knows about 
special keys (mine is a Thinkpad R61).

Oh, and you should get rid of .Xmodmap or similar hacks. Try to find a 
correct keyboard model first and only use xmodmap if no keyboard model 
fits yours.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
