Here on Gentoo, xkeyboard-config owns the /usr/share/X11/xkb/ directory 
and everything under it, plus a few documentation files and manpages, and 
a pkgconfig file.

AFAIK that path is fairly standard, but the dir is probably xkb even if 
it's located elsewhere.  See what owns it and go from there.

I think you're right, it's a kde not xkb issue, as I see the behavior 
you're getting, here too, even after the patch.

Meanwhile, I commented on the bug and linked back to this thread, just in 
case it helps.  Plus I CCed myself.  Thanks for posting the link! =:^)
