Keyboard mapping problems using SSH tunneling

While using OpenSSH 5.3 to SSH into my Debian 5.3 GNU/Linux and Ubuntu 9.10, I encounter keyboard mapping problems whenever I run X11 applications from the SSH terminal. When I type into any X11 program (such as leafpad, xterm, etc.), the keyboard output is completely jumbled. When I type "QWERTY", I get "-=[reverse tab][forward tab]w", also caps lock acts as a space and the back space as a comma.

I'm running all this on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (v 10.6.2)

Update: I upgraded to Virtual Box 3.1.0 and the problem disappeared in Debian for one session. I then ran gnome-settings-daemon and the problem reemerged. How do I fix this?
