I presume you've restarted restarted udev or rebooted since then?
I have now (rebooted).
% udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=input --action=change
Can we see the content of your file (without the comments), please?
Could you also point us to the instructions you've used as well, please?
Note: I was mistaken in thinking that _that_ page said that the
/etc/default/keyboard setting would take effect for both the virtual
consoles and X.
However, I read (somewhere else) that in Squeeze one could fix both the
virtual consoles and X with one setting.
(Also, the fact that /etc/default/keyboard uses the name "XKB..." and
uses the X configuration format suggests that the file might also be
read by X startup scripts.)
