Description of problem:
I installed FC2T3 with German as my default language and keyboard
layout. While booting the system for the first time after installation
firstboot came up and I created a new local user account. The password
contains special chars.

When gdm finally started I tried to login with this new user account,
but the password was never accepted. So I tried to enter the password
using an english keyboard layout and suddenly it worked.

This never happened to me in older Fedora releases.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC2T3 and set German as default language/keyboard layout
2. create a new user in firstboot and use special chars in the password
3. try to login with the new user account

When I disable rhgb, firstboot loads the German keymap correctly.  

jrb:  Looks like bug #100686 has returned.

I'm astonished that this bug still exists in FC2 final. This really
should have been a showstopper bug!
