Bug Description

When you go to add a new keyboard layout and select a UK layout, it (awesomely) shows the actual layout and the values of all the keys. However it shows it over a US-style physical keyboard (i.e. with a one-row-high return key).

The keyboard model I have selected is "Generic 105-key (Intl) PC". The problem is that the physical layout of the keys for this keyboard type is not constant.

The fix: The code should detect when a UK layout is detected and draw using UK-variants of the 105-key (or whatever) keyboards.

Instead of this: http://concentriclivers.com/misc/keyboard_current.png
It should look like this: http://concentriclivers.com/misc/keyboard_correct.png

I confirm the issue, seems that every draw is confused, the attached is not an italian layout.
