At one point (I'm afraid to make many guesses--most of them are for
problems I had months ago that have since been fixed) xkeyboard-config
was having a problem there being no /var/lib/xkb directory.  

At that time, one sometimes also had to do 

mv /usr/local/share/X11/xkb to /usr/local/share/X11/xkb.old

Again, I don't know that the solutions I gave are still relevant, but
perhaps they are.  At least in the problems that were going on awhile
ago, (several months back) the usual problem was an error in that there
was no /var/lib/xkb.  The error in xkeyboard-config would specifically
state that that was the error.

Buffy: Mom, the only way you get a new slayer is if the old 
slayer dies. 
Joyce: Then that means you... When did you die? You never told me
you died. 
Buffy: It was just for a few minutes.
