If you're using OS X 10.4 (Tiger), a temporary workaround is to set the
'apple keyboard' preference to yes and to execute the following in an xterm:
xmodmap -e 'remove mod1 = Mode_switch'
xmodmap -e 'add mod5 = Mode_switch'
Some of the option keymappings won't work, but you should be able to
enter '[' and other characters. Note that this change will affect other
X11 apps, but I suspect if will change them for the better.
This problem is due to a change in the Apple X11 apps that affects other
gtk based applications, such as gimp, and openoffice.
Sorry for the trouble,
