Bug#344871: kdm: changing Language option breaks keyboard input

Package: kdm
Version: 4:3.4.3-3
Severity: important
Tags: l10n

If I keep the Language option in kdmrc on the default en_US, then the
greeter will happily accept both Hebrew and Enlgish input, even though
all the menu items are in Englsih. If, however, I change the option to
he_IL or he_IL.UTF-8, then it stops accept Hebrew input. If I try
typing hebrew in a text field, all I get are empty boxes. If I try
activating a menu using Alt-key, it fails. This happens on both my x86
desktop and my powerbook. This is new to 3.4 (I had no problem with
Hebrew kdm in 3.3 or earlier).
