I set at the menu "English(Australia)", and for some reason
it selected DVORAK keyboard mapping.

As QWERTY is used by majority of computers in Australia,
I consider this... errr.... cbjrbk.bc.by^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h

I think that there needs to be another menu option asking what
keyboard layout you use, because choice of keyboard is a matter
of preference rather then what country you live in.

(PS. I hope this is the best forum for this type of bug report...)
