I sometimes experience thie azerty keymap problem recently
on my living potato which is upgraded from slink.

I think this should be not caused by b-f, but by some packages
related. I doubt console-data, because it was upgraded recently.

In /var/lib/debconf/debconf.db, There are:

  }, 'Debian::DebConf::Question' ),
  'shared/keymap/layout' => bless( {
    'variables' => {
      'choices' => 'azerty, dvorak, fgGIod, qwerty, qwertz'
    'name' => 'shared/keymap/layout',
    'flag_isdefault' => 'false',
    'template' => $templates{'shared/keymap/layout'},
    'value' => '',
    'owners' => {
      'console-data' => 1,
' => 1

This shows 'console-data' and 'console-data\n' as owners, 
somewhat strange. (debconf has similar "owner" lines, but all other
packages just have '<package>' only. no other '<package>\n' is there.
