It can happen. KDE 3.1 from unstable seems to use different keyboard
layouts than the old woody version, so on german keyboards, the <>|-key
may only be available in the "pc105" keyboard layout. This is active in
Knoppix 3.2 already, but if you upgraded a harddisk-installed Knoppix
to a new KDE release, the old pc104 keyboard setting may still be active.

And I forgot: The @ key is now back available in the boot console german
keyboard layout if you press one of the umlaut keys. Some mem= options
seem to depend on it, but the Alt-Keys are not working at that early boot
stage, so the previously installes de-latin1-nodeadkeys bootconsole
keyboard was not working well.

That was fixed in version 2003-03-30.
