    i've got some problems with my keyboard all the time.
    mostly, after restarting the computer (10.5.6), it resets the keyboard layout to "US".
    instead i wanted it to be "Logitech, Deutsch Schweiz" and having the char table and keymap (dont know the english names, just the two options on top) available.

    i can set them, but as soon as i reboot, they'll disappear and "US" is back again. kinda annoying.
    this happens not on every reboot.
    but i did not found a pattern. sometimes its the correct layout after rebooting, sometimes (most) its the US layout

    i already set the language of OS X to "German" in the "international"-pref pane.

    any ideas?

    I've seen this behaviour gradually appearing on each of the machines I administrate too. It's very odd.

    It persists even if you deselect 'US' as a potential keyboard layout and just select 'British', usually appearing after a restart

    If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them
