[maemo-users] OS2008 Danish keyboard layout with bluetooth seems broken

It seems that changing the keyboard layout to Danish/Dansk doesn't do 
anything at all. The actual layout seems to be completely unchanged from 
the previously used layout.

E.g. if I've just had it on English (USA), then change to Danish, the 
key left of shift continues to produce slash "/", whereas I would expect 
dash "-". Also, the key left of enter produces appostrophe "'", whereas 
I would expect the Danish o-slash "ø".

Then I tried switching to Norwegian/Norge, as it should be fairly 
similar. Except, they don't have our combined a and e "æ". And 
altgr-shift-z/x doesn't produce "<" and ">" as it used to do with Danish 
layout in OS2007, which means I can't do something as simple as 
redirecting output in the shell..

This is all quite frustrating as it means my keyboard is useless for 
most day-to-day tasks. I have to use the on-screen keyboard which is 
much slower to type on.

Can anyone confirm this? Does the same problem exist with other keyboard
