Thanks. I see some potential problems here:

 * keyboard layout:
  - Can you please do Ctrl+Alt+F1, login, and give me the output of

     sudo DISPLAY=:0 xprop -root |grep NAMES.S

 * plymouth (splash screen):
   - Does the keyboard start to work if you press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then go back to gdm with Ctrl+Alt+F7? (Could also be F8)
   - If you do "sudo apt-get purge plymouth" and reboot, do you still have the problem?

 * libxklavier when changing the password:
  - Does the keyboard work before you select an user in the user list? I. e. can you enter characters when you select "other user", or can you click on the lower-right power icon and select menu entries with the cursor keys?
