/etc/X11/xorg.conf is empty (well, actually I want to add something
there, but that's not relevant for this bug, see below).

/etc/default/keyboard contains


Xorg.0.log for "de" layout is at http://pastebin.com/1L0yTgEx and for
"us" layout at http://pastebin.com/XtjcCMiW. For "de" layout it works,
but not for "us" layout.

The only problem is, I have a "us" layout keyboard! With the "de"
keyboard some keys are obviously wrong, but at least I am able to input
something at all.

Comparing both log files (ignoring "de" vs. "us" and different
/dev/input/eventX numbers for power buttons and PC speaker) I only see
that the log for the "de" layout has at the end

(II) Power Button: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Power Button: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) HID 046a:0011: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) i2c IR (HVR 1110): Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"

which is not the case for the failing "us" layout. I guess that's
because for the "de" layout I properly shut down X, which I didn't do
for the failing "us" layout.

Note that I always rebooted between changes to /etc/default/keyboard.

I also checked that /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us exists and it looks good.

No, I don't think that would help (I can't even enter a user name in the
kdm/gdm login window).
