Chris, have you tried Xmodmap revise suggested by Timo? (See 1 Sep
2009 message by Wang Diancheng. In his case, Super and Hyper are
confused.)  It's a workaround, but if it works it doesn't hurt to have
one. Too bad what exactly fixed his issue remains obscure.

Look at xkb/symbols/level3. It reads:
xkb_symbols "ralt_switch" { // This key seems to be the AltGr.
  key <RALT> {
    symbols[Group1] = [ ISO_Level3_Shift ]
  modifier_map Mod5   { ISO_Level3_Shift }; // **Look here**

So it's mod5 by default for some. Have you verified output of
xmodmap -pm?
