Bug#255453: Back-slash and vertical-bar keys broken under X

Package: xserver-xfree86
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-4

Summary: Back slash and vertical bar keys broken under X.

System: Debian GNU/Linux sarge 2.4.25-1-k7
        libc6 2.3.2.ds1-12


This is how the keyboard is configured under X,
but those two keys remain incorrecly handled:

  # dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

  XKB rule: xfree86
  Keyboard model: pc104
  Keyboard layout: br
  Keyboard variant: abnt2

This is a work-around for the issue:

  $ xmodmap -
  keycode 51 = bracketright braceright
  keycode 94 = backslash bar

For reference about the keyboard, this gives
perfect results in the console:

  # dpkg-reconfigure console-data

  Select keymap from arch list
  Keyboard family: qwerty
  Keyboard layout: Brazilian
  Keyboard variant: Standard

I suppose specification for my
keyboard variant is not available
for X?
