I took a look at the source! and it is searching the path


I'm not sure about the double asterisk, but I get:

$ find /usr/share/keymaps/ -name es\*

I am guessing that the plain 'loadkeys es' is getting the one in olpc. 
That directory only has es.map.gz and pt.map.gz.  Try:

cd /usr/share/keymaps/i386/olpc/
mv es.map.gz olpc-es.map.gz
mv pt.map.gz olpc-pt.map.gz

And then see if the simple 'loadkeys es' works properly.

I note that there are other possible name collisions in places like
i386/qwerty/cz.map.gz vs i386/qwertz/cz.map.gz.
