I found it via another post, console-setup was not installed, fixed that
and dpkg-reconfigured the keyboard and the console, rebooted, x is
running normally now. Thats a relief, I thought I was going to have to
hack on udev. :(
Thanks for asking. To find the clue, install locate, updatedb, then look
for README.Debian, and out of the 40 or 50 that spits out, read the one
with keyboard-config in its locate output line.
Cheers, Gene Heskett
