I did and I put up the reason why this was the right thing for me
to do in this perspective.

I have several bug reports that got treated badly
and rather have a good report then a bad one to not waste even more time.
I am happy to file a bug, but with my knowledge I cannot decide where.
It might be a kernel Xfree86 or Xorg bug and I have no real solution.

	Others have wonderful pages about GNU/Linux installation
	[..]
	Note: I have not looked at Jochen's xkb work, 
	the following is a hack that I did quickly for myself.
