What does this have to do with XFree86 exactly? I miss that part...
Reassigning to kbd, not an XFree86 problem.
According XFree86 XKB developers, problem can be the console font used.
our console font has space for only a limited amount of characters. we
have to compromise and choose the unicode font with the most amount of
coverage. the workaround is to change the console font in
/etc/sysconfig or to use a GUI if you need a wider font range than
what the text console can provide.
