Well, the best option, as suggested by the other posters, is to
not use gnome-settings-daemon. XFCE and ROX have similar
utilities, and I suspect that there must be a way to change
fonts via .gtkrc-2.0, but I couldn't name it. You could also
change the keymap with a gnome tool, but I wouldn't recommend

The easiest method is this, though:

gnome-settings-daemon &
(sleep 1; capsmod3)&

If C gives you enough rope to hang yourself, C++ gives you enough rope
to bind and gag your neighbourhood, rig the sails in a small ship and
still have enough rope left to hang yourself from the yardarm.
