build os207 -- on a CL1C machine equipped with a spanish mechanical keyboard, the the key combination which should produce a "{" (left brace) character (i.e., "shift-, in the bottom row), instead produces a?" (right bracket) character.

this is a result of a copy/paste error in /usr/share/X11/xkbd/symbols/es, at line 233:

this edit can be applied by hand, if necessary.
i'll build a new rpm as soon as i'm confident there are no other botches like this.
