Description of problem:
I selected the Dvorak keyboard layout during installation but
firstboot still uses a qwerty layout.

When rhgb runs before firstboot the keyboard layout is incorrect in

When rhgb does not run the keyboard layout in firstboot is correct.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Dvorak keyboard layout during installation.
2. Boot newly installed system with rhgb enabled.
3. Attempt to type a username in firstboot's "Create User" step.

Actual Results:  I type "David" on the Dvorak keyboard and "Ha.gh" is
entered into the text box.

Additional info:

After reading Bug #100686 I removed /etc/sysconfig/firstboot, ran
"chkconfig --add firstboot", and rebooted.  I booted removing the
'rhgb' kernel argument and adding 'nogui' argument.  rhgb did not
start and firstboot had the proper Dvorak keyboard layout.  I tested
this on two systems.
