Default setxkbmap crashes Xorg

Hi,

Has anybody found a work-around bug #462243
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=462243). It was
merged with an upstream bug in Xorg
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14162). It happens in my
Debian sid system, with a M$ Natural Ergonomic (4000 v1.0) keyboard,
whenever setxkbmap is called. I do this through kde's keyboard layout
in control center, and X simply crashes. It also happens with a mere
call to setxkbmap on the command line without args.

I have this relevant entry in xorg.conf:

,-----[ xorg.conf (lines: 50 - 57) ]
| Section "InputDevice"
|
| # generated from default
| Identifier "Keyboard0"
| Driver "kbd"
| Option "XkbModel" "microsoftpro"
| EndSection
`-----

This has completely crippled the ability to change keyboard layout
between languages, so any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

You don't need setxkbmap to switch between different keyboard layouts.
I also use KDE, but I prefer to use kkbswitch and set up X as follows:


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "it,se"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:shifts_toggle,compose:menu,lv3:rwin_switc h"
EndSection

Cheers,
Davide

layouts. I also use KDE, but I prefer to use kkbswitch and set up X as

Yes. I switched to kkbswitch because I had problems with KDE's
management of multiple layouts, although setxkbmap does not crash here
(I am using as a work-around for a bug in xkb-data).
