Hello Uwe,

Since you reported this, I hadn't been able to test D-I myself and try
reproducing this issue.

Today, I finally could....but couldn't reproduce it. I booted the
daily built *netboot* image, then did choose French as install
language and French keymap.

Apart from a weird prompting during the base system install (the
system re-prompts for the keymap but properly defaulted to "France"),
I easily completed the install...and the installed system had a
working french keymap.
