As indicated by the "~/.Xmodmap", I do use X.   Curiously,

$ dpkg -L console-data  # told me that console-data was not installed.

After an "apt-get update" and install of console-data, I tried
"dpkg-reconfigure console-data" a couple of times, in turn trying US and
British keyboards, but neither fixed the scrambled keys. I see now that
"|" gives "~" in addition to the miscoding described above, which
remains constant for all maps tried so far.

If there's some way to guess what map a Logitech wireless keyboard needs,
it'd be really useful. Here in Australia, keyboards tend to be US or
maybe US-international, whatever that is. (Found in the full list,
option 4 in "dpkg-reconfigure console-data" dialogue)
