Even worse is when a key like alt, control or shift thinks it
is still being pressed.
I have a GVP seriesII scsi controller and I used to get this
*alot*.  I noticed that it was using chipmem for my bounce
buffer instead of 16bit ram (this gets printed during the system 
startup).  Since I forced it to use my 16bit ram as a bounce
buffer I've seen this problem *alot* less.  Very rarely in fact.
(How did I patch it?  I patched loadbsd to make sure the 16bit ram
was tagged as 24 bit dmaable memory).

just about everything in /etc is an example config.  "This is an
example of how you could setup your system."  You probably want
to edit most of the files in this directory, and save them across
