If you end up doing this, be sure to check for $DISPLAY being set, only
executing the command if that is the case.
e.g.

if [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]; then
	setxkbmap us
fi

Else you might see strange errors when logging in via SSH (if you don't
have $DISPLAY set by using ssh -X, for example) or with scripted SSH
sessions/commands.

(NB: A command like "mesg n", which is found in some distributions'
default .bash_profile files - especially for the root user - should be
wrapped in

if test -t 0; then
	mesg n
fi

for similar reasons).
