You are right, that was the problem. The keyboard model was pc104. How this
configuration file worked for the 4.2 version is a mistery for me.
kxconfig is a useful tool for checking and solving on realtime this kind of

Some other Spanish users at my workplace had the same problem when updating
to 4.3. First with experimental packages and now in sid.
