Ah, I didn't know that the compose sequences are used for the dead keys.
Compose sequences in console-setup are encoding-based. See for example
/etc/console-setup/compose.ISO-8859-2.inc. However at present there is
no file compose.UTF-8.inc and even if there is one ckbcomp will not use

This bug should be fixed in a future version of console-setup. But for
the time being I can suggest the following fix. Run (as root)
ckbcomp cz >cz.kmap
Open the created file cz.kmap in a text editor and add the following two
lines at the end:
compose '^' 'd' to U+010F
compose '^' 'D' to U+010E
Run (as root) in order to confirm that the new layout works as it should:
If it does, then add in the file /etc/default/keyboard the following line:
Remove this line from /etc/default/keyboard when you receive a message
that the bug has been fixed.
