I'll check with my friend what is the real memory of that card and then
file the bug if it's the case.

I installed from the net. It seems that the bugfix is not upstream yet.
My source.list was at time of installation:
 deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ warty main restricted
 deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu warty-security main restricted
And the xfree-package is:

Of course! here it goes (it's the standart configuration for most
brazillian keyboards:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "abnt2"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "br"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "abnt2"

I'm not sure the XkbVariant is really needed.
