Wrong keyboard input with VNC

The keyboard input via VNC is randomly not correct anymore.

This does not look like some other keyboard layout.
For example the following changed:
/ is -
ctrl + 8 is 9
I cant write ctrl c (cancel) and so on.

They layout in Datacenter -> Option was set to "Default", I tried changing to English (USA) and German (de) but nothing changed.
Anyone ever had such bug? Via SSH to the KVM the input is correct. It works on LXCs
Have you been able to resolve this problem? What version of Proxmox VE are you using? Some work on noVNC has been done that might help you.
Sorry, looks like I forgot to reply here. This is a bug with the Icecat browser, it is working fine in chromium.
