Now looking in Xorg.0.log:

(WW) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap

Because, /XX/share/X11/xkb is 'empty' and setxkbmap will not work. 

Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: compat
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: compat.dir
Common subdirectories: /X_old/share/X11/xkb/compiled and /XX/share/X11/xkb/compiled
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: geometry
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: geometry.dir
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: keycodes
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: keycodes.dir
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: keymap
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: keymap.dir
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: rules
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: semantics
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: symbols
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: symbols.dir
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: torture
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: types
Only in /X_old/share/X11/xkb/: types.dir

Copy from X_old to XX will not work. Unstable X.

Someone an idea to fix this?
How about xkbdesc?
