Thanks for your report.  I reproduced the bug so you can proceed.

The bug is caused by undocumented use of XkbLayout in your xorg.conf.

Currently console-setup doesn't support this.  It expects

 	Option		"XkbLayout"	"fr"
 	Option		"XkbVariant"	"oss"

I think it shouldn't be difficult to fix console-setup.
