If AltGr works in the console then most likely keyboard-configuration 
has generated correctly the keyboard configuration file.  But in order 
to be sure, please send us the contents of the file

Thank you for your detailed report.  I noticed that you have chosen 
'Right Alt (AltGr)' to function both as Compose key and as AltGr key.  
In this case keyboard-configuration will configure this key to function 
as AltGr (which is exactly what you want).  But if you want the right 
Alt key to function as AltGr then it is more natural to select 'No 
compose key'.

All this is only a theoretical suggestion.  As I wrote, in your case 
keyboard-configuration will ignore your request to make the right Alt 
key function as a Compose key so this should not have affected the bug 
you observed in any way.
