Absolutely nothing? Hmm. Never seen that before... 

A few minutes' googling suggests that you might get on better with
a different keyboard model in your xorg.conf. What's it currently
set to? Mine is 

Option "XkbModel" "pc101"

Try looking for your keyboard in /usr/local/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst
and try the model name in the first column.

Apart from that, I have no idea, sorry.
