As a general rule (and without looking at those particular bug reports), back when I maintained X, I asked reporters to run a bare X session, meaning without a display manager and without a desktop session. gdm3 (or whatever component behind, handling settings) has been the culprit several times already, replacing the system settings with other settings based on user language. (See #590534 for an old example.) Comparing the output of "setxkbmap -print" from a bare X session and from $desktop_environment is usually a nice place to start from. Mraw, KiBi.
