I found one, with help from a friend on SPARC, where a similar problem exists
(though on a different keycode).

He suggested I try evaluating the keycode with xev.  This returned 135, so I
used the following receipe to have a temporary fix: 

xmodmap -e "keycode 135 = less greater bar"

This cures the problem on my Keytronic 105-key Finnish keyboard and on the
original HP 102-key Finnish keyboard, but is obviously a kludge; the keymaps
need to be fixed to use the correct defaults for Finnish keyboards in the X
keymap library.  Btw, both keyboards are bog standard PS/2 models.

Feel free to forward this info to Branden or whoever else handles X upstream.
