setxkbmap crashes Xorg


Has anybody found a work-around bug #462243
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=462243).  It was
merged with an upstream bug in Xorg
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14162).  It happens in my
Debian sid system, with a M$ Natural Ergonomic (4000 v1.0) keyboard,
whenever setxkbmap is called.  I do this through kde's keyboard layout
in control center, and X simply crashes.  It also happens with a mere
call to setxkbmap on the command line without args.

I have this relevant entry in xorg.conf:

,-----[ xorg.conf (lines: 50 - 57) ]
| Section "InputDevice"
|     # generated from default
|     Identifier     "Keyboard0"
|     Driver         "kbd"
|     Option         "XkbModel" "microsoftpro"
| EndSection

This has completely crippled the ability to change keyboard layout
between languages, so any ideas are welcome.  Thanks.
