I just recompiled the world from 12/22 sources. Switching consoles
via alt-ctl-F1 (from X11) leaves me with what appears to be a "dead"
kbd. Keystrokes are totally ignored.
I can still ssh into the machine from another machine, so the computer
isn't hung. Killing X11 from a remote machine with cause xdm to
restart X11, which does switch back to the X console and the keyboard
Could the keyboard be left in scan-code instead of ascii mode? I
remember early X11 used to do this and the symptoms were similar.
