I'm not sure if this should be filed against anaconda or XFree86, but in X,
all ticks (`) and backticks (') are being escaped and have to be typed
twice. During install, I selected 104-key US and dead keys. The options
put in XF86Config-4 by anaconda are:
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "us_intl"
Changing component to XFree86
If you selected dead keys, this is expected behaviour - you can compose
characters like `a and 'a (well, with the accents over the characters).
