Bug#442479: XKB layout setting ignored with evdev keyboard driver

Package: xkb-data
Version: 1.0~cvs.20070914-1
Severity: normal

The keyboard layout specified in xorg.conf (in my case de) with the
XkbLayout option is ignored. Instead I get what I think is the us 

I get the following error message in the Xorg log:
(WW) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap

The problem as well as the message disappear if I either switch to the
old version of /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes/evdev or change the minimum
keycode setting back to 8 and remove the keycode mappings below 8.

Just changing the minimum back to 1 will trigger the problem again.
