10.5: Avoid an external keyboard modifier keys bug System 10.5
Since installing 10.5, I have found that changing the modifier keys (using the Modifier Keys button in the Keyboard tab of the Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences panel) for my USB external keyboard does not work. However, I have found a way to get around this bug...

I changed the modifier keys in the 'All' settings section, and then changed them back in the 'Built-in Keyboard' settings, and this left them modified for only my external keyboard.

This works fine - for a while. At least after the next time my Powerbook wakes up from sleep, the Command and Option keys are changed on the internal keyboard, forcing me to change everything back to defaults.

Am I missing something here? I hope Apple fixes this in 10.5.2...

The 10.5.2 update has not fixed it. :(

Same here. Works for awhile then next time I plug in the external keyboard I'm back fixing it again. Super annoying and I agree, hopefully fixed in 10.5.2.
