I use Virtual PC on MacOS X.

Make a standard install of NetBSD 2.1/i386 in VirtualPC, reboot.
Works fine.

Then I want to upgrade to 3.0_BETA or -current respectively.
I download kern-GENERIC.tgz from a recent snapshot and reboot.

Then NetBSD comes up, but I can't login: The keyboard doesn't work
at all. This renders NetBSD completely unusable.
I can only make it usable again by making a full re-install of NetBSD 2.1.

Reproducable with 3.0_BETA kernels AND -current.
