Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

I've installed

language-pack-es - translation updates for language Spanish
language-pack-ca - translation updates for language Catalan
language-pack-gnome-ca-base - GNOME translations for language Catalan  ... 
and some others language packs from spanish languages {Euskara,Catala,Asturianu...}...
After then, I noticed the keyboard was not mapped correctly (I was programming in bash when I noticed), then go to gnome-keyboard-properties to see whats with the keyboard distribution. I found that "Basque" was choose, so I've tried to change it to "Spanish", when I changed, it remained in "Basque", all other languages except "Spanish" work correctly.
Then I've looked at locale, that was correctly "ca_ES.UTF-8 at euro". After that, rebooted Xserver Xorg, and test keyboard with GDM, then noticed that keyboard works correctly in GDM, so get logged into Gnome session to confirm that, but still in "Basque" distribution.

My PC is an AMD XP 2200+ with Ubuntu 6.06, Gnome 2.14 and all security
updates to date, my keboard is a Logitech Itouch in spanish variety and

Thanks, I'll try to change language to Spanish to see if bug stills.
I think that's a bad mapping of the XML configuration files.
