I've now checked my configuration. I had specified "us" as XkbLayout"
for X11. I've changed this to "de" for testing and it works fine. I've
never thought about XF86Config-4, since I didn't thought it would affect
this setting. I had completely forgotten about since, since I'm using
the KDE keyboard tool in KDE itself to decide which keymap to use. Maybe
this should be documented somewhere? But at least you can close this
bugreport and thanks for your help.
