azerty keyboard behaves like qwerty on kde's login page in loop3

Sabayon 3.5 loop 3, fresh install.
My azerty keyboard behaves like a qwerty keyboard on the login page. Works fine when on the desktop.
I reproduced the bug twice :
* Start install
* Choose French keyboard (latin 1 or latin 9)
* Reboot after install
* Keyboard behaves like qwerty on kde's login page
The keyboard worked fine when under the live dvd session. Maybe it is some process that isn't started at boot time ?
According to mph on http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=13511&p=77482&hilit=sqbq*#p77482
This COULD be resolved by NOT switching to the french keyboard layout when launching the live dvd before install. Didn't tried it myself.
The issue was also seen here by the same user (first post only, not discussed after that) : http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=13538
The fix posted in comment #1 won't work.
Thanks! I added HAL keyboard configuration support to sys-apps/keyboard-configuration-helpers-2.4-r1.
