I think it can only be caused by either a settings change or a package
installation and knowing that the key behavior is both GNOME & KDE
(happens in Evolution, OpenOffice, Konsole and every other program I
try), I don't think this is a systemsettings thing but I removed the
Chinese keyboard in Regional & Language/Keyboard and unset the country
or region setting to 'not set (Generic English)' like yours. I cannot
remove the US English installed language and have logged off and logged
back on but no change.

these are the only packages that I have installed in the past few


Thanks...I am at a loss as to what is causing this but it's irritating
not to be able to use the 'delete' key.

On the bright side, I can type Chinese...well in the same sense that
Bill Murray could play the piano because his father was a piano mover.
