It is a problem with locales, after installing it new CTRL-F1..F6 is now
working in the console. It's only now Windowskey-F1..F6. I don't
remember if it was CTRL-F.. or ALT-F.. but it definitely wasn't
Windowskey-F.. before. One wonders why console switching depends on the
locales. Even for USB-keyboards it should always work regardless of any

Unfortunately it doesn't work under X, I haven't found the right key
combination so far or how to correct it there.
