You would quickly run into the same problem with a Norwegian keyboard if
your password contained anyting outside a-z0-9.

assumption for a desktop OS that the keyboard used during install will be
permanently attached), and what I used to log in would be the default for
that session. Wouldn't that be far more user friendly?

It must be a wonderful challenge... It would have been very fun to have the
spare time for that kind of project. From my user perspective I would rather
have nvidia turn around and learn from Intel and lately ATI/AMD. Even those
are big challenges but at least documentation exists. The Nouveau developers
have chosen a real 'mission impossible' and are actually getting there. I am
very, very impressed.

Is it possible to search the source of all packages for constructs that
assume GMT offset is positive? Or perhaps add testing with negative time
zones to some list of recommended test procedures?
