I was bitten by this same issue of the Full-QWERTY.kbd file getting
blasted by the updates described at the link you reference above
and in fact just yesterday I posted a note about this on a page I'm
keeping at my site where I jot notes about fixing or improving my
Freerunner: http://natha.nkinka.de/openmoko.

In any case, I got the Full-QWERTY.kbd file back by simply downloading
the tar-gzipped files for the 2008.8 release and cherry picking it
from there: http://downloads.openmoko.org/releases/Om2008.8/Om2008.8-gta02-20080808.rootfs.tar.gz
