I have a desktop in which I have installed Debain. I connected to it using vnc from my laptop and was typing some command when I observed that the complete Keyboard layout had changed to some unknown keyboard layout. I tried re-installing but the problem still existed. So when I googled it, I found this bug report which was luckily resolved and the solution was also shared in it.
Hence all I had to do to solve the problem was to add the following line in $HOME/.vnc/xstartup before the last line /etc/X11/Xsession
'export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1' x

This is for those who work usually on systems through VNC, I am one among them. It was very cumbersome for me to select tabs in the VNC system using mouse and not able to use ALT-TAB functionality. Hence when I searched in Google for any solution, I found a very simple soultion.

Just change the ALT-TAB key binding in your linux machine to something comfortable for you. After you have done this, whenever you select ALT-TAB, the system passes that key-binding to the VNC window.

The solution is just that simple. :). Enjoy.
