Well, I had previously set the keyboard layout from within Xfce; I
tried setting it from console-setup (usingthe same setting I had in
Xfce), but things got worse: now if I select "use system defaults",
next time I reboot, the keyboard works correctly inside gdm, but gets
completely shuffled as soon as I'm in xfce... (e.g. if I hit the dot i
get KP_Enter)
The fact is that the special keys have always worked (i.e. I see them
with xev), it's just that they don't trigger the shortcuts...

I had already got rid of that...
So, if I understand it right, you problem was that your keyboard
layout was not set?
If so, it's not the same problem...
