Fixed, using the same approach as we took to fix the same bug in oem-config.

  [ Luke Yelavich ]
  * scripts/casper-bottom/30accessibility: Set gconf and orca config values as
    root in automatic-ubiquity, only-ubiquity, and debug-ubiquity modes.
  * ubiquity-hooks/30accessibility: Remove unneeded gconf call to disable esd.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Ensure that the live CD user's Desktop directory is owned by them, not
    by root (LP: #218576).
  * Duplicate a chunk of console-setup logic into the keyboard script so
    that we can deal with non-Latin keymaps and the like without having to
    have gfxboot-theme-ubuntu help us; the previous approach broke other
    uses of console-setup, and thus the alternate install CD (LP: #218754).
    This should later be replaced by just running console-setup, and I'll
    open another bug for this.
