Installation Turkish character bug, doesn't change keymap at install

Which results in things like, I for one set up a password with ö, although I selected Turkish keymap at start and pressed ö in my keyboard, it still uses English keymap which that, password doesn't wont really have ö in it, instead it has "," which is in place of ö. That is just an example. Probably happens with all non English languages. I think Swedish has ö, Germans have ü. I can pass this because I know English keyboard aswell, so a lucky guess fixed this problem for me.

The same happens to everyone not using a US keyboard, the easiest way to make sure it does not catch you out is to turn on the "show password" option when choosing the root and user passwords. the install starts by assuming it is a US keyboard, and keeps to that right up until it writes everything to disk.
No easy way to solve this, but just keep remembering to make passwords visible on the screen when you create them
