VirtualBox and VNC keymap

I'm using VirtualBox OSE (4.0.14_OSEr74382) on a host without a GUI
(FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE) and I'm trying to connect via VNC to install a VM
with Debian Squeeze. The procedure I used to install VirtualBox is this
. The syntax I use on VirtualBox OSE to start the VM is the
$ VBoxHeadless -startvm Debian --vnc --vncport 5901
But it seems that the keyboard is misconfigured. I have a spanish
keyboard and, for example, if I type ":" I get a "Ñ", or pressing ")" I
get an "=".
I tried several clients (xtightvncviewer and xvnc4viewer). I also tried
with a Debian VMHost and I found the same behavior on VirtualBox 3.2.4
(Lenny Backports) and VirtualBox 3.2.10 (Squeeze), which makes me think
that this is some bug in VirtualBox VNC code.
Has anyone experienced this behavior and was able to resolve in any way?
Thanks in advance.
