Re: setxkbmap crashes Xorg

Has anybody found a work-around bug #462243
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=462243). It was
merged with an upstream bug in Xorg
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14162). It happens in my
Debian sid system, with a M$ Natural Ergonomic (4000 v1.0) keyboard,
whenever setxkbmap is called. I do this through kde's keyboard layout
in control center, and X simply crashes. It also happens with a mere
call to setxkbmap on the command line without args.
I have this relevant entry in xorg.conf:
,-----[ xorg.conf (lines: 50 - 57) ]
| Section "InputDevice"
| # generated from default
| Identifier "Keyboard0"
| Driver "kbd"
| Option "XkbModel" "microsoftpro"
This has completely crippled the ability to change keyboard layout
between languages, so any ideas are welcome. Thanks.
You don't need setxkbmap to switch between different keyboard layouts.
I also use KDE, but I prefer to use kkbswitch and set up X as follows:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "it,se"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:shifts_toggle,compose:menu,lv3:rwin_switch"
