Okay, I got it to work in a brute force way: I just added another setxkbmap command to set my normal options, the same ones as in my xorg.conf. But something weird happens when I try the fancy way: saving the options with "setxkbmap -print >FILE" and then restoring them with "xkbcomp FILE". It seems that the change I make with "setxkbmap -option FOO" is never reflected in the output of "setxkbmap -print". Looks like another place with multiple "levels" of configuration stepping over each other. -- Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet, if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
