I'm sorry -- I won't be able to do that, due to a lackof time.
Many thanks for the attention to this bug, though.

For the moment, the workaround I use is to add an application to those
that are automatically launched at mate startup, namely
sh -c "setxkbmap fr"

I don't know why sh -c is necessary and why notthe command alone, I
found this on the Internet. That works...
