The default and recommended "no xorg.conf" setup doesn't play nice
with keyboard layouts. You need to set one on your xorg.conf or
another X.org init script.
I love the idea that Xorg now just works (TM) without any
configuration file, but it could generate something based on what it
detected on the first time, or something.
