### Keyboard problem in Gnome

When log onto my Linux server using WinAxe and run Gnome, the keyboard maps incorrectly. KDE works fine and the keyboard is OK until I type "gnome-session". After that the keys are shifted over by one so "s" becomes "a" and the left "Ctrl" becomes the "Enter" key. I've tried all the keyboard configurations I can find.

This is true for both of my Linux servers, one running Oracle Linux version 6 and the other CentOs 6.4. Gnome version 2.28. Here is the output of the gnome-about (the missing RANDR is another mystery - it runs on the console and I've enabling the ssh-forwarding and everything else I could find).

[sarah@Station ~]$gnome-about --gnome-version Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "165.112.59.249:0". Version: 2.28.2 Distributor: CentOS Project Build Date: 10/10/2012 Thanks in advance for your help!
