I have the same problem described in "bug description". On 7.04, I can start a vnc server (tightvnc), and the keyboard is fine until I type "gnome-session", after which point it's remapped as described.

If instead, I run:
gnome-wm &
gnome-panel &
nautilus --no-default-window &
gnome-cups-icon &
gnome-volume-manager &

it seems to give me most of gnome, minus the inconvenient keyboard remapping.

Workaround: I modified my ~/.vnc/xstartup to be:

#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
gnome-wm &
gnome-panel &
nautilus --no-default-window &
gnome-cups-icon &
gnome-volume-manager &
xterm &
