I have a Belkin KVM switch which provides USB or PS/2 "outputs".  I've
used it successfully with a Mac.  When I connect it to a NetBSD machine,
the key which is normally \ or | becomes # (unshifted) or ~ (shifted).

Everything else works normally.  No key appears to prodice \ or |.  And
yet, connected to a Mac, it seemed to work fine.

Anyone else seen anything like this?  Surely, the USB keyboard spec isn't
*that* random.
