Xmodmap settings get reset...

When starting up X11, before typing any thing in any X app (xterm or whatever, happens with Wine too), I can set xmodmap (in a startup script) and remap some keys. These keys show as changed just fine... As soon as I actually have X11 as the active app and press any key (a few seconds later, or even let it set several minutes)... it resets everything back to defaults and just loads the ~/.Xmodmap file, and loses what was set manually in the startup script. Easily reproducible, in 2.5.0 and in the devel version off macports I have installed. Highly annoying...
I've only tested and found this off remapping the Alt buttons to actually be Alt buttons... a start up script that launches X and programs uses xmodmap to remap Alt to be Alt keys, and they show up as such, but as soon as I type anything in X11, they switch right back to Mode_switch... switching them again after that sticks, it only resets the first time anything is pressed after being started.
