Is that really the case?

— M-! xkbcomp $DISPLAY -
— remove  XF86Switch_VT_1  from  key <FK01>
— M-| xkbcomp - $DISPLAY

Oh, indeed!  If one is experiecing oddities with input when using Emacs (as 
well as some app running under terminal emulator), it might be due to the fact 
that it still is not layout-aware.  And if user have never needed non-latin 
input, he in turn might be not aware of that fact., were not your experimenting with similar to QWERTY yet 
slightly different layouts?
