xinit does not load xkb map from .Xkbmap

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2-test1
2. echo 'us,ru -option grp:alt_shift_toggle' > ~/.Xkbmap
3. init 3
setxkbmap does not called
setxkbmap should be called automatically with arguments from .Xkbmap
This is unlikely to be a bug in XFree86 packaging, because nothing
in XFree86 has changed which would cause this type of problem.
However, there have been other reports of problems with xinitrc
caused due to gnome-session wiping out the configuration performaed
by xinitrc et al. so this might be a duplicate of the same problem.
Can you look at bug #119295 and bug #119018 and see if these issues
are similar and/or related to the issue you are having? Can you
reproduce either of the other bugs?
Moving to xinitrc component which is where the scripts reside,
however this may be a GNOME bug possibly.
Oh I guess I know what's wrong here: xinit is not supposed to load
the keymap. xinit is just the binary. It is startx that runs xinitrc
after starting the xinit. I would say NOTABUG.
I just tested and startx works great with both /etc/X11/Xkbmap and
OK, I have just checked the behaviour of RHEL3 - it does not load
So, it is not a bug. Sorry.
