Bug#517697: xkb-data: PK keyboard Layout letters dont join properly

Package: xkb-data
Version: 1.3-2
Severity: normal

The keyboard layout for Urdu Language 'pk' in /usr/share/X11/xkb does 
not join alphabates or letters properly. which makes writing impossible 
for urdu language users using this keyboard layout. The problem 
disappeared when the default layout was replaced with a custom made 
layout downloadable from this location: 
http://ubuntu.sabza.org/wp-content/pk I suggest that the keyboard layout 
in debian is either replaced with this keyboard layout or it should be 
modified to use this the layout as described in this custom layout. it 
should also be released as a patch since without this change lenny's out 
of box urdu write support will remain broken.
