Thanks for following up.  I've decided to go ahead and remove this
special-case logic and this will appear in a future release (along with
a ton of other changes to the xserver-xfree86 config script).

Please file a bug report against xlibmesa-gl.  Installation of the
xlibmesa-{gl,glu,dri}-dbg packages, and a backtrace from a segfaulting
client, would be *very* helpful.

Please see the Debian X FAQ[1], and see if the technique for
troubleshooting a misbehaving "< >" key even when the XkbModel is set to
pc102 or pc105 works.

If it doesn't, or if you find a problem in the actual XKB data for your
keyboard model, please file a bug against xlibs.
