[kde-linux] Weird keyboard settings change

Hi list,

I'm using KDE-3.5.6 on an IBM Lenovo T60 with gentoo-linux.
I have a 105 keys german keyboard.
My locale is german LC_ALL=de_DE at euro (same for most of the friends ;-)
In kcontrol I set keyboard to german. Because of strange effects as
decribed below I set up a secondary keyborad setting to be US.
I also use dead keys to produce accented letters like é è ê etc. and
special letters like ~.

From time to time (with no apparent systematic so far) the keyboard
settings change from german (Umlauts, german scharfes S (ß), ...)
apparently to us keyboard setting. That's quite annoying ,-(
The worst thing is that I didn't understand so far how to produce the
tilde ~ with a us keyboard setting.

Anybody else who had similar effects?

Any idea appreciatetd ;-)
