keymap over ssh


i have a little problem here.
I have loaded the keymap (swedish) on my new SuSE 9.1 install. The thing is that the keymap works great with the swedish characters when typing directly at the console. but when connecting to the box via SSH the swedish characters don't work very well at all. either the charaters don't display at all or they appear while making another irrelevant keystroke (like space).

I've tried changing to similiar keymaps, like norwegian and finnish, but they all produce the same problem. and i've also tried different platforms to connect from. like putty with windows and the standard ssh-aplication with my laptop running SuSE 8.1

Anyone who can recognize this and perhaps give a hint? thanks!

now i've also tried updating my openssh (there was only one newer version from the one i had) and it made no difference. then i tried to degrade openssh to 3.4 which is the standard of SuSE 8.1 where the character map works fine over ssh. but that made no difference either.

ideas, anyone? thanks.

does the vanilla keyboard layout work (ie. ascii only, no remapping)? does pure ascii with remapping work (such as dvorak)? Does it work with other versions of ssh? If all else fails, resort to reading the man page on setxkbmap and ssh
