So most window managers and login managers don't get the keyboard right,
however gnome does.
The correct/wrong keyboard setup/information must come from *somewhere*,
but from where?
So one thing the OBR could do to figure out what's going on is to
"strace -f" startx and the gnome startup, figure out which files are
being accessed (only stat, open and mmap calls are of interest I guess)
and then compare the produced lists.
Otherwise, if nobody can figure out what's going on, or the OBR doesn't
care any more either the OBR or the console-setup maintainers can decide
to close the bug, since no way forward can be made unless there's more
info. Or leave it open.
HTH a bit,
