Well I'm not sure it's related to new GNOME as this problem exists in
KDM+KDE too.

So I still think something has changed recently regarding the default
keymapping. It might not be systemd package specifically of course but
two people have reported keymap issues since trying it - can't rule out
a new X11 and a lack of a recent reboot being to blame tho' :D

Yup you did.

I guess this is why I can no longer suspend from GNOME? Need to work out
exactly how this is supposed to work these days, but it could be related
to the lack of consolekit support in gdm or something... (my
ck-list-sessions shows me as inactive and thus perhaps the old ways of
working out if the user can suspend stopped working?)

Not a big issue as this is cauldron after all and there will likely be a
few changes in this kind of stuff before mga3 :D
