Bug Description

Package: kvm
Version: 1:84+dfsg-0ubuntu11
Distro: Ubuntu 9.04 amd64

My keyboard arrows doesn't woking on kvm, even if I connect with vnc.
In SDL mode it gives the following message every time I press an arrow key:
qemu: warning: unknown keycodes `evdev(abnt2)_aliases(qwerty)'

Which VNC client did you use and how did you invoke kvm?

Had this same issue running a qemu with kqemu:
# sudo qemu -hda /dev/sda -m 800
On the grub menu, I coudn't use arrow keys and got the same message. Off course, using a keyboard layout abnt2. After that I typed:
# setxkbmap -layout us -model us
 and restarted qemu command. Worked fine!
I am running Intrepid:

I invoke kvm with: kvm -hda /home/bruno/kvm/example.img -net user -net nic -localtime, I'm not using vnc to see my kvm console, I'm using SDL.

I'm sorry by my answer delay, I don't see the last question about how I invoke kvm.
