Bug Description

A new regression in Oneiric I found while testing the installer :

In the keyboard layout selection there is no more "French (Switzerland)" choice on the left pane. Swiss-french people now have to go to "German (Switzerland)" and then choose Switzerland French layout in the right pane.

Most users swiss-french users won't be able to find their layout this way.
