I changed my configuration to:

    Option	"Protocol"	"wskbd"
    Option	"Device"	"/dev/wskbd"

So, it's using the wsmux device.

Likewise, the mouse configuration is:

    Option	"Protocol"	"wsmouse"
    Option	"Device"	"/dev/wsmouse"

and it works fine.

I think this may have something to do with the mode that wskbd is in
(delivering cooked or raw keyboard codes), but I'm unclear on that at
the moment.
