Ok, with some hints from Ezy on IRC (thanks) I was able to fix this problem
by changing the text mode to this values:

struct grfcltext_mode clconsole_mode = {
	{255, "", 25200000, 640, 480, 4, 80, 94, 89, 90, 100, 481, 490,
                                             old: 99, 100

	498, 522, 522},

If these values work fine for other people, too, maybe they should be used
as defaults?

I found the reason for this problem myself. I have to modify "machdep.c" to
get an quite old Z3 Fastlane driver(*) to work. And this time I disabled the
CIA interrupt checking by mistake so the keyboard couldn't work anymore.
Sorry, for the wrong bug report.

Anyway, the cirrus console works really nice now, good work!
