keyboard layout problem under ubuntu intrepid

Hello, I have a problem with my keybord, instead of azerty, it produce on the first line : ge:q In the log I can see :
Failed to recognize the keyboard mapping or to guess it based on 00:00:36.804 the keyboard layout.
under ubuntu intrepid-ibex.
I had this problem under ubuntu hardy with virtual box 1.5:3, the 2.0.2 from other sources solved it.
Testing intrepid ibex (i totally removed the old virtual box package and use the one from intrepid) the problem came back. My keyboard is a Typematrix 2030 ps2. Work well under linux. I tried with another keybord and solve the problem (but I way prefer my true ergonomic keyboard).
I tried to change the keyboard settings from « evdev » to « PC104 keys » or « generic ACPI » with no results.
Same with other keyboard but I find a « trick » : I unpluged/repluged the keyboard, edev don’t recognise it and it works (but i loose my french settings in gnome !).
So I don’t know if it’s an ubuntu bug or a virtual box one…
