I found the tool xev and it shows (below on an aterm) that there is no
"}" event when typing ALT + AltGr and }.  I think I have to ask some
debian mailing list.

for M-{ (ALT + AltGr + {) it is working:

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 403204309, (-125,390), root:(466,410),
    state 0x0, keycode 64 (keysym 0xffe9, Alt_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 403205217, (-125,390), root:(466,410),
    state 0x8, keycode 113 (keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 403208093, (-125,390), root:(466,410),
    state 0x88, keycode 16 (keysym 0x7b, braceleft), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7b) "{"
    XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7b) "{"
    XFilterEvent returns: False

------------------------------

not so for M-} (ALT + AltGr + }):

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 403316166, (-235,391), root:(356,411),
    state 0x0, keycode 64 (keysym 0xffe9, Alt_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 403316752, (-235,391), root:(356,411),
    state 0x8, keycode 113 (keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift), same_screen YES,
