no matter which vnc client (tight, turbo, tiger), the keyboard mapping is wrong when running tighvnc on the bbg wireless. 
asdf becomes abfh...
xsetup does have "export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1"
does anyone have a work-around?

After working on this for a while, I think it is a problem with LXQt. I installed the core of LXDE and a few LXDE apps, rebooted and then removed LXQt. Now I have no problem using TurboVNC. This also saved a large amount of eMMC space. LXDE works just fine for my purposes.

           sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lxde-core

sudo apt-get install gksu leafpad lxterminal lxpolkit lxsession

sudo update-alternatives --config x-session-manager

choose lxde

     sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove 'lxqt-*'
