I have no further ideas, at present.

Perhaps applications make unwarranted assumptions on the keyboard layout 
to use, or perhaps set it to their own liking.

I have had many cases, where (though the installed keyboard layout is 
dvorak), when in an unusual situation (such as recovering in terminal 
mode from an unexpected error), the terminal-mode software would assume 
(and enforce) a qwerty layout.
