That should not affect the keyboard layout at all anyway.

The problem apparently isn't specific to mc either, as this mailinglist post suggests:

So it seems to be somewhere deeper I suppose, maybe bash itself or some system startup script.
Or maybe it could be a bug in the new startplasma program that's used instead of startkde now? :-/ (that would "run" ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh on login AFAIK)
I forgot to write that after "rm ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh" you should restart plasma (logout-login).
