It's been a long time. I hope you've fixed the problem by now.
But if you haven't, and for the sake of others, I solved this problem
In XFree-4_libraries port:
or 'portupgrade' or what you like.
Something obviously went wrong with the port. reinstalling fixed the problem.
Note that you don't have to be as destructive as rm -rf A simple deinstall would
be safer and less hassle.

I upgraded a workstation today previously running Gnome 2.0,
FreeBSD-STABLE as of November or so (4.7 I think),
and XFree86-4 4.2.1, to Gnome 2.2, FreeBSD 4-STABLE as of today, and
XFree86-4.3.0. I did a make world from source, but installed Gnome and
XFree86 as packages from the 4.8-RELEASE CD.
XFree86 starts up fine, Gnome 2.2 starts up, my Eterm shells start, it all
looks great... until I try and type, and then any key I press on the
keyboard results in an X resolution mode change. Kind of annoying, and
I'd like to fix it. I can't find anything unusual in
I'm still using the "keyboard" driver in my XF86Config file; I tried
changing that to "kbd" and it had no difference. I'm about ready to rm
-rf /usr/X11R6 but I'd prefer to know exactly what's causing this. Where
should I start looking?
