My setup is : Ubuntu 10.13 + Aranym 0.9.15 + Emutos 0.9.3 + EasyMint 1.18

When I use this setup with my spanish keyboard, given that I have the proper Keyboard.TBL and the NVRAM setup to spanish, everything is working fine.
When I use this setup with a french keyboard (properly setup and working under Ubuntu) with the NVRAM set to French and the correct keyboard.tbl (French_P), all the keyboard is shifted 1 row up, that is to say : Key 1 = A, Key 2 = Z, Key Z = S, Key S = X and Key X = nothing ... Seems like scancodes are shifted up.
And the strangest thing is that if I press 'esc' during Emutos boot screen, the French keyboard is later working fine under Mint !!!
This has been tested on 2 different machines, 2 different Linux and with different keyboards (USB, wireless and PS2) : same strange result.

This problem does not appear with the same install running on Aranym windows nor OSX.
