The Apple ProKeyboard USB keybard cannot be plugged in or unplugged while
X is running, otherwise the other keyboard (either the external board or the
laptop keyboard) generates incorrect keystrokes.  Quitting from X, switching
keyboards and re-starting X works around the problem. 
Start X, plug in Apple ProKeyboard USB keyboard.  Note incorrect keystrokes
when pressing keys.  Ditto for the laptop keyboard when unplugging the
external keyboard while X is running.
