I have this problem too (French layout).
It may be annoying, because once installation is completed, installer asks to create a new user. But to create this new user, it uses the wrong layout.
So one can puts e.g wrong password without notice it.

Proposing as F13Target.

In either case, the keyboard you select in your window manager has no effect on the system you later install: think about the live user as just an ordinary user on the live cd system that can have entirely different l10n preferences that the user you create during firstboot. They also have a different password etc. Also see the bug 552926.

The keyboard you select in anaconda should work though, will take a look.

Also related is bug 568936, but that was fixed the last time I checked.

Did a fresh install with the 2010-04-29 nightly compose and the problem is fixed.

Retested on a second machine and it definitely works, so I am closing this.
