Can you turn this feature off, restart xdm, log in again and tell us what
happens? I tremendously appreciate this, as I'm caught up in other release

Thank you very much for writing that. Can you discuss with
Stephen Early <sde1000@debian.org> what we should be doing to configure
this at X installation time? For example, should we store some information
about the Linux keyboard mapping that the user has selected and use that
to choose an X keyboard mapping? Should we go into the keyboard
configuration part of xf86config in the "xext" postinst? Should the X
server postinst comment if you are using a non-US Linux keyboard and
you have not installed "xext"?
