Comment(by dsd):

 Looks like Fedora have some troubles with the evdev driver for keyboards:

 * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436823
 * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=435634
 * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=365711
 * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=185943

 also on my own Gentoo system I have similar problems - it doesn't apply
 the GB keyboard layout, even though it is configured to do so. It does
 appear that evdev doesn't work so well for keyboards on non-OLPC systems.
