I can perform such a testing - in theory.  But in practice, I was never
able to figure out this -k $lang stuff, -- neither in qemu nor in other
apps like rdesktop and the like.

What I usually do is to explicitly set en-us keyboard for applications
that are "too smart" and tries to guess "right" keyboard from env.
variables such as $LANG.

The reason is that after specifying "ru" keyboard, I can't use latin
chars anymore, and can type only using cyrillic.  Since cyrillic
layout does not have any latin char, imagine how to type, say, a
path name (even "C:" drive in windows).

All modern OSes nowadays have a way to switch between keyboard layouts
dynamically - this is done internally in the operating system.  So,
basically, I've no idea what this -k $foo stuff is used for to start
with ;)

Care to explain please?  Oleg?  :)
