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 xkbcomp /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list
    + ls -l /etc/X11 /etc/X11/xkb
    + ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 /usr/X11R6/lib/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?
