Description of problem:
When booting in a Japanese locale, init messages in the detailed console
screen are initially displayed currently until when /etc/init.d/keytable is
run. Then the output on the detailed screen from then on is broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
My guess is that this is probably caused by /etc/init.d/keytable running
Bill removed the keytable initscript (since keytable gets loaded by rc.sysinit)
Fixed in the latest initscripts.
