Bug#541291: console-setup: No special characters after update

Package: console-setup
Version: 1.44
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

After an upgrade of console-setup, most special characters don't work anymore (öäüß°).
Most of them just produce a beep. `ä' doesn't beep but also doesn't output anything.
'ß' behaves like the up-key (previous entry in history).

Before I had version 1.36 which didn't have these problems.
