Could you (or anyone else) check? The xkbcomp error is not in the X log, 
but on the console from where I type "startx". If you start X through a 
display manager I suppose it would end up on something like a system 

The warning, here, is:

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:

 > Ignoring extra symbols
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
