gpg/keyboard issue

I just imported my gpg keys from my previous install. However, when 
trying to use them to sign/encrypt/decrypt, my passphrase fails, even 
though I'm one hundred percent certain it's correct. 

Possible cause: my passphrase contains a character that I added to my 
keyboard manually through xmodmap - the scandinavian "ø" character. 
Even though the character works, and I can type my passphrase 
apparently correctly, it fails. People suggested that it might be 
related to my keyboard mapping; I can't remember offhand what it was 
set to before so I tried possible settings, but so far no luck. Is 
there a procedure to get this working?
