Just a guess here, but have you tried rerunnning system-config-keyboard whilst 
running under your dom0 Xen kernel?

Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
