I have now tried an installation with Marco Amadori's patch
applied. As stated by Marco, it does fix the problem and the chosen
keymap is correctly set-up in the installed system. However, during
the installation I was prompted to select my desired keymap 3 times,
so it is far from ideal.
Also, this is obviously quite easy to fix in the installed system by
reconfiguring the 'keyboard-configuration' package, but I guess the
main concern is when a user selects any keymap, other than US, during
the install process and uses any characters in their password which
are not mapped to US. In such a case the user might be a bit flummoxed
when their password is rejected.
