I would try:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "be"
More information is in /etc/X11/xkb/README.config. Another possible
approach is to temporarily remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf (by renaming it)
and trying if "dpkg-reconfigure -plow xserver-xorg" comes up with a
keyboard section which works better.

Just wanted to check if you have xkb-data; seems all OK.

I hope that changing to the "xorg" keyboard rules fixes your problem.
