Installation for German(Swizerland) is messed up.

Bug Description

When I install the system and I chose Deutsch(German) as language for the installation, I’m not able to chose the Switzerland-Switzerland keyboard layout. I can select it, but the keyboard still remains in another (German) layout. When I use “Detect Keyboard Layout” I have the option for a Layout named “Schweiz” and it works during the installation, but the setting will get lost after the setup.
When I install the system in English, I’m able to chose the Switzerland-Switzerland as the keyboard layout and it works just fine but I have problems to change the Language later in the system because the Language Support is only available for “Deutsch(Deutschland)” and not for “Deusch(Schweiz)”.
The problem exists in 13.04 and 13.10 but not in 12.04.3.

Posting the method of installation that you used will allow us to report this against the correct package, confirm it and peg it as a regression.

The bug happens in the standard graphical installer with the standard installation CD 32-bit . It occurs in both ways “Try Ubuntu” and “Install Ubuntu”.
