Ah, I was thinking French, too. (The original post was about a French 
keyboard.) Unfortunately, you'll have to try some things, as I don't have an 
immediate solution for you (or a Finnish keyboard!)

So first, copy your keyboard InputDevice section, and paste a copy at the 
first line of your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. That way, you can still use debconf 
to manage the rest of your XF86Config-4, but have your keyboard overrides.

Then, I have a couple of ideas for you to try. You'll have to restart X after 
each of these changes and see if it works.

First, try deleting the XkbModel "macintosh" line. From the 
/etc/X11/xkb/keymap/macintosh file, only us keyboards are defined. Restart 
and see if that works.

Otherwise, try deleting the XkbLayout line and adding a line:
XkbSymbols  "symbols/en_us(pc105)+fi

Let us know if either of these help.
