I don't think I've seen the same behavior, I did select the correct
keyboard layout after booting with the Live CD, and then installed the
Beta to the HD. When I rebooted firstboot popped up, added a new user.
When logged in as that user the keyboard was still defaulted to US
layout (I guess GDM was defaulted to that, I didn't pay attention).

IIRC, the first screen during installation from the LiveCD asked for
the keyboard layout, I would have expected GDM to default to that
layout after reboot.

I'll try again with the RC to be sure, though.
