Ubuntu 9.04 Keyboard Mapping Problem on Tight VNC

After logged in to VNC server, I get problem with the keyboard mapping on Ubuntu 9.04. When I type “abcdefghij” I get “asdfghjkl;“. After searching on Google, the problem was submitted as a bug and the work around is by adding:

In VNC’s xstartup file:  $HOME/.vnc/xstartup

You have to add the line export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 before /etc/X11/Xsession or gnome-session (in case you use GNOME)
