Yes, there is an issue with the keymap:
I choose 
language: german
area: Germany
keymap: german

and the german de_DE keymap is not active (z and y are swapped,
umlauts don't work).

I wanted to find out what happens in the background, but:
1.	I wasn't able to switch to a virtual text console
	(with Strg-Alt-F2 for example). No text console

2. 	then I wanted to use function "save debug logs",
	I choose "mounted filesystem" and then complete system
	hung up.

3.	I missed the entry in the main-menu "Start a shell"
	Where is it gone?

So I cannot give info, if the keymap is loaded but damaged or
something like this, or if it isn't actually loaded.

Another observation:
when installation is started with expertgui, german keymap

This all was with an netinst image downloaded today, 07.06.2007
