Problem with keyboard layouts

I have a Logitech Cordless Desktop-keyboard. This keyboard has a bunch of
"multimedia"-keys, and I decided to put those in to good use in KDE. I played
around with xev, and I mapped few keys (namely, the volume up/down-roller),
but it wouldn't work in KDE. Then I realized that I need to change my
keyboard-layout accordingly in the control center. So I went and enabled
keyboard-layouts, and then I changed my layout to Logitech Cordless Desktop.
And lo and behold, the volume-roller I had mapped with xev did indeed work!
But then I noticed that some of the regural keys do not work! For example, q,
w and y do not work. There are quite alot of keys that do not work (my
estimate is that about half of the regural keys are not functioning.
Number-keys do work). I tried disabling keyboard-layouts from control center,
but it still wouldn't work. Only after I logged out and logged back in, would
my keyboard function normally again (but without those multimedia-keys of
KDE is 3.2.3, installed from Gentoo-ebuilds. This is an AMD64-system that has
been compiled with GCC3.4 from scratch. X-server is X.org.
