Keyboard not working properly after installation of guest addtions

Description

My keyboard is no longer working properly after I installed the guest additions for version 2.1.0. I can't use the Umlauts anymore, furthermore keys like @ and € (they remain q and e when I try to type them via Alt Gr), or § (remains 3 when using shift) The German keyboard is still active though (y and z).

When I do I console login, I have some of the keys back (§, ä, @), some are still not displayed properly (€, ö, ü)

I use Kubuntu 8.04 als guest. I restored a backup and tried again, but it happened a second time. Funny thing is though, that at the first time ö and ü were working, but at the second time they didn't. I didn't check other keys like @ and € the first time.

Same problem occurs on Vista 64 host.

I should have added this, but in my case it is a Windows XP SP3 host

Another thing: when I wrote "Funny thing is though, that at the first time ö and ü were working,", this was the case for the console login. ö and ü didn't work in both cases inside KDE
