libvirtd or QEMU ?  I don't see why libvirtd would SEGV for a 'be'
keyboard, but QEMU certainly might if it were not supported.

QEMU only supports a handful of keymaps (see /usr/share/qemu/keymaps)
and I dont think 'be' is one of them.


Our recommendation is to never set the '-k' /keymap option at all these
days. Recent QEMU / KVM and GTK-VNC releases support a VNC extension for
sending raw keycodes, instead of localized keysyms. Thus is best to leave
off the keymap in the config, and just configure it inside the guest OS.
