I reside in Denmark and have a Danish keyboard, but still I want the installer to speak English to me.
Therfore I specify
- Language: English
- Country: Denmark
- Keymap: Danish
at the very start of the installation. This seems to work fine during the base system installation, but in the base-config after reboot, the X-server is configured to US keyboard!

One can fix it by running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 from a tty, but I guess it is a bug anyway.

I have seen the problem several times before with the same netinst procedure on other machines, so it seems easy to reproduce.
