General rule for -k:  If your keyboard layout is messed up try using -k,
otherwise don't bother.

When you use vnc -k might be needed, but whenever that is actually the
case depends on the vnc client.  There is a vnc extension to send raw
keycodes, if the vnc client supports that this gives best results, if it
doesn't you probably need -k for any non-us keyboard layout.

The usual virt-related clients (virt-manager, virt-viewer,
remote-viewer) support that vnc extension.
