Of course it was tpb that caused my problems. Thanks for pointing that 
out. If I'm careful with starting xhkeys _before_ I start tpb it works 
as expected, even though tpb complains that:

[jon@Lilleman jon]$ tpb
There is already a application grabbing some ThinkPad keys.
Possibly you restarted tpb too fast.

I'll guess the patch of tpb will solve my problem. Alas, Savannah's file 
repository is still down. Could anyone on the list help me with 
obtaining the source code or a patched rpm or srpm-package (Mandrake 
9.2)? I usually have most source-code I compile myself as a local backup 
but this wasn't the case with tpb. :-(
