This is a clear sign that the program which creates the keyboard description
does not work properly. You can switch this off with the -kb switch for XWin.

I created a new with -kb  option. Now everything works fine. according to the log 

(--) winConfigKeyboard - Layout: "00000409" (00000409) 
(--) Using preset keyboard for "English (USA)" (409), type "4"
(++) XkbExtension disabled
(--) 5 mouse buttons found

I do not know what was the problem with the keyboard
