Bug#604671: xkb-data: apple:badmap option doesn't work anymore, breaking @#/<> on powerbook/ibook usb keyboard

Package: xkb-data
Version: 1.8-1
Severity: normal


as noted on irc, the apple:badmap option was dropped from xkeyboard-config,
supposingly because a fix had been commited into the kernel (which would be
the correct place). Except that in 2.6.32 squeeze kernel, the fix is not
present which means on my (french) powerbook 5,6 with usb keyboard, typing
the key marked <> produces @# and the key marked @# produces <>.
