I'm in the middle of this myself. I think my problem is
/etc/kbd/default.map is gzipped.
init.d/kbd-boot.sh says this about that:
if [ -r /etc/kbd/default.map -o -r /etc/kbd/default.map.gz ]
I gunzipped default.map and rebooted (hate doing that) and all seems
well, although I'm still finding and removing some other things I
tried -- stty ^H, .Xmodmap changes... -- so I'm not sure yet.
