Short description of error
defining a new keymap entry uses a different locale than the actual system keyboard

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I use the german keyboard locale (so some keys are swapped relative to american/english)

Try to define a new key mapping under preferences/keymap:
click on a key definition so that "press a key" appears.
when I hit the key which shows (on the german keyboard) "#"(hashtag), I get "/"(slash) entered instead.
if I store this and go back into the edit view, hitting "#" does not work.

if I do this with a key which has the same position on the german and english keyboard (e.g. "." or "a") it works
(of course I have to delete the other definitions for the selected key beforehand)
