When using Ubuntu Linux with the French MacBook keyboard, keys <> and @# are inverted : <> should be between SHIFT and W, @# should be on left of &1, but I have @# between SHIFT and W, <> on left of &1. The problem will not occur neither in Parallels Desktop nor in VMware Fusion.

See also ticket #2996. I have the same problem with a Windows XP guest on a Macbook with OS X 10.4.11. On a german keyboard the keys </>/| (to the right of the left shift key) and ^/° (left to the key 1/!, below ESC) are swapped.

The problem is not new, I had this also on earlier versions (since 1.6 I belive). Could you please fix this? It is really annoying - try to write some HTML or XML with this keys swapped!

Same problem for the Italian keyboard \| and <> are swapped. The problem apply to all guest OS (at least linux and windows)

I've exactly the same problem with ubuntu 10.04. Please can you solve the problem, I guess it doesn't take a lot of time to solve.
