Thank you very much : you're quite right. It's merely a configuration problem !

I've digged a long time with Google and I found the ultimate solution :

The cause of this is Apple has mapped the option key to both the X11
mod1 and Mode_Switch key symbols and gtk doesn't support this if the
XKEYBOARD extension is not present.

*One way to solve this is to do a simple shellscript:

cd /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS
sudo mv X11 X11R6
sudo $EDITOR X11

/Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11R6 +kb $*

sudo chmod 755 X11

Now my problem is solved ! It would be a good idea to integrate this
trick in MD FAQ.
