No this is a regression..

In a perfect pony world after the install you should have the keyboard
layout you select during install.
( thou I cant recalling that to ever work since F8 or to be precise the
removal of xorg.conf  ).

X/Gnome seems not only be adding the USA keyboard layout back to the
users account after he removes it but defaulting to it as well.

We need to add locale or at least an none USA keyboard layout to
autoqa's test queue.
