Keyboard does not work with JDS 3.0 (Gnome @ Solaris 10)

I'm using XWin to connect to a Solaris 10 system
from my Windows 2000 SP4 PC. I connect to it by running:

Xwin :0 -xkblayout ch -clipboard -screen 0 1261x941 -fp tcp/ -query -once

This will give me the XDM login screen of Solaris 10. There
I select "Java Desktop System, Release 3" (JDS, ie. Gnome).
After logging in, I get the following error message:

	Error activating XKB configuration.
	Probably internal libxklavier or gnome-settings-daemon problem.

	X server version data:
	The Cygwin/X project

	If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
	- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
	- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb

_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "ch", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "ch", "", ""

 layouts = [ch]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []

I get the same error, when I start Xwin without a "-xkblayout"
setting. I also get the error, when I start Xwin locally (Xwin
:0 -xkblayout ch -clipboard -screen 0 1024x768) and then
SSH connect to the box and start "gnome-settings-daemon".

When I use Exceed (installed on a different PC), I do NOT get
this XKB error.

Any idea what might be causing this problem?
