Thanks for the report.  We need a little more information:

  * We need /var/cache/apt/archive/xbase-clients_4.1.0-16_*.deb.  I.e., the
    file apt downloaded.  Please do not email it, but put it up on the web
    somewhere and provide us with a URL.

  * The output of the following 3 commands:
    + grep etc/X11/xkb/compiled /var/lib/dpkg/*.list
    + grep var/lib/xkb /var/lib/dpkg/*.list
    + ls -l /etc/X11/xkb

  * What was the previous version(if any) of xbase-clients that you were
    upgrading from?  Was this a new install?  Was there any output from
    xbase-clients *before* the 'Setting up xbase-clients (4.1.0-16)' message?
