Thanks for the clarification.  If wsconsctl map doesn't give usable
output, then we can always fix the errors in the map the hard way: by
seeing which keys are mapped to the wrong place and swapping the
corresponding entries in the map file.

Koodo: could you tell us what characters you get when you type the top
left keys on your keyboard, the ones that should read "qwert" on a us
keyboard, "azert" for fr, and "bépo" with the user-defined map?  If the
map is just garbled, we should be able to ungarble it.  If something
else is going wrong, we may learn something in the attempt.

(Of course, if "wsconsctl map" produces anything legible, that might
be valuable information).
