Bad Keyboard  mapping.
Bad translation in some gnome menus

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.After making the selection French in install.
4.Trying to write a # with my french keyboard give me a {
5. For this to work I have to launch setup and choose in the keyboard menu
6. Start gnome with startx
7. Press the "Foot Menu"
    --> Everything in this first part is not with a good traduction
	Programs instead of Programmes
              Favorites instead of Favoris
           but menus in Programmes are well mapped...

Just a notice.
If I try export LANG=fr_FR and restart gnome this problem would'nt appear

hp - will you check to see that all of the po files from the Europe office were
applied - if there is missing translation we need to let Federico know.

I ve just noticed this :

When starting with GDM the foot menu is in french and in a terminal doing
env|grep LANG give 

When starting with XDM the foot menu is not in french and in a terminal doing
env|grep LANG give 

When starting with startx the foot menu is not in french and LANG=fr_FR@euro

But doing GDM_LANG=fr_FR and startx the foot menu is in french (LANG=fr_FR@euro
and GDM_LANG=fr_FR)

Another notice doing LANG=fr_FR and startx the foot menu is in french

Hope this could help....

Duplicate of the @euro bug assigned to installer earlier today...
