I recent updated from netbsd-current 4.99.4 to 4.99.17 and started having
some problems with my keyboard, and with panic's in wscons.
I know there were some changes to keyboard handling recently, but I
thought they were backed out, so it seems unlikely that that's causing
There are several things I'm noticing:
1) I get a crash in wsdisplay_kbdholdscreen, at line 1930 of wsdisplay,
apparently due to sc_focus being null.
I blindly added a check for null, having it return if it is.
2) If X is running, I can't switch screens using Ctrl-Alt-Fn. If I stop
X, switching screens works.
3) Keys often get stuck down (logically, not actually on my keyboard :) )
and I need to press them slowly to release the autorepeat.
#2 and #3 were problems even before the workaround I added for #1.
Has anyone else seen anything like this?
I'm going to try back-dating my build to April 2nd or so, to see if it helps.
