Bug#401296: Bug#395257: Workaround for keymap related bugs in g-i available, please test it
I believe the bugs you ran into are more similar to #401296 (G-I
interface does not work in UTF-8 mode/input handled in 8859-1) and
#394871 ( cdebconf-gtk-udeb: Dead keys do not work with French keyboard
(fr-latin9) ) than to #395257.
#395257 ([g-i] keymap change works only once), is about a different bug

parts and dropping 395257.

d-i.png shows expected output from pressing keys 1-0, g-i.png shows
current output from your g-i miniiso.
That's very similar to what Eddy reported: "special" accented letters
are displayed with wrong accents or symbols.
Talking with Davide on IRC we both agreed that this is related to the
way DFB handles input and not to DejaVu glyphs, otherwise also text in
translated question description would look weird.
