On standard German keyboard layouts some symbols such as @, {, [ ,\ can only be typed, when holding the AltGr key. After installation it is not possible to type these characters with such keyboards (even when choosing the right keymap de-latin1). It seems AltGr is completely ignored.

After removing the "grp:switch" XkbOption in /etc/xorg/xorg.conf.d/keyboard.conf, this issue is gone for me.
