Have you told hald that the keyboard has a different layout?

IE, do you have this:

> $ cat /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
      <merge key="input.x11_options.XkbLayout" type="string">es</merge>
