To reproduce: download mini.iso (either text-mode or graphical). Start
installation, select Russian as the language. At some point, you will be asked
(by console-setup) which key combination to use for switching between layouts.
Then you'll hit http://bugs.debian.org/473559, please work around it by
switching to the second virtual console, issuing "rm
/target/usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/*apt*", switching back, and setting
debconf priority back to normal. This is not, however, the subject of this bug
Then the installer will download and install language-specific packages, and
console-cyrillic among them. This package also asks for the keyboard layout
So the end result is that two packages are setting the keyboard layout in the
installed system: console-setup and (later, thus overriding the settings)
console-cyrillic. It is also ugly to see essentially the same question being
asked twice via debconf (first by console-setup, and then by console-cyrillic).
I understand that there is a plan to remove console-cyrillic and rely solely on
console-setup in the future. However, this doesn't work now: if I remove
console-cyrillic in hope to rely only on console-setup, the keyboard becomes
completely unusable when I press Alt+Shift in order to switch to Russian (the
presence of console-cyrillic, thus, masks the bug in console-setup).
Since Lenny is nearly frozen, I suggest reverting the decision to use
console-setup for languages (including Russian) where its settings are
overridden later. In other words, for Lenny, when Russian language is selected
during installation, please install only console-cyrillic, not console-setup.

[ Anton Zinoviev ]
* Support for X key types such as PC_CONTROL_LEVEL2 and PC_ALT_LEVEL2.
Never use ShiftR. Thanks to Alexander E. Patrakov, closes: #484822.
Urgency medium because #484822 is related to the default settings used
by d-i for some languages.
* Improved support for non 'KP_...' keys in the keypad block.
* console-setup-mini and udebs: fix some bugs in modifiers in
precompiled non-latin layouts
* Support for some new X key symbols (some of them spelling errors).
* ckbcomp: accept a list after virtual_modifiers
* Debconf support for grp:alt_caps_toggle, grp:lctrl_lshift_toggle,
grp:sclk_toggle, lv3:alt_switch, lv3:enter_switch, compose:lwin
* Removed debconf support for grp:alts_toggle, grp:ctrls_toggle,
grp:shifts_toggle, grp:shift_caps_toggle as it is impossible to
support them on the console.
* update Keyboard/ckb with the keyboard data of xkb-data version 1.3-1
(this syncs console-setup-mini and udebs with the main package)
* xmlreader: ignore tags languageList and countryList.
* Remove dh_installxfonts from debian/rules.
