Bug#484685: gnome-control-center: Caps lock LED changes state even when caps lock is mapped to ctrl

Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

i've swapped the Caps Lock and Ctrl keys from gnome's keyboard control panel.  it works when i log in through gdm, although when I press Caps Lock the Caps Lock LED on my laptop still changes state.  however, when i use startx the keys do not swap functions at all.

this is the same symptom as in "Bug #173350 in gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)."
