I can't say if "XkbDisable" would help in your case ...

  Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "DontZap"        "false"
    Option "AllowMouseOpenFail"     "true"

    #  XFree86 4.[34].x - Add "DontVTSwitch" to be false (for console
    #  switching).
    Option "DontVTSwitch"   "false"

    Option "HandleSpecialKeys"      "Always"

    #  Xorg 6.8.(2|99.903) - Add "XkbDisable" to be true (for console
    #  switching).
    Option "XkbDisable"      "true"

... but try it.
