    PS/2 keyboard, X.org 1.3.0 (version is at the top of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, or
    wherever your distribution puts that log), and this xkb config (in
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf):

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option "XkbVariant" "euro"
    Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rctrl"
    EndSection

    (you can forget that XkbVariant -- it's not yet in most distributions).

    Problem as observed here consists of a sporadically stuck delete key in
    Thunderbird 2.0.0.5, using kernel 2.6.22.1 vanilla -- not yet observed using
    2.6.22.1-cfs-v19.1
