Modular XOrg keyboard does not respond as it should -- keycodes generated do not match keycaps, sometimes keys don't seem to generate anything, sometimes will start repeating and never stop. In my instance, "2" and [enter] will crash X. I've tried w/ keyboard drivers v. 1.1.1 and 1.2.0, with no success... changing keyboard driver to input-void seems to leave X stable (for the amount that I could test it)... startx would also sometimes dump core (sh.core), and indicate that it quit with Signal 3.
More and more people in #netbsd are reporting experiencing the problem, but not everybody... Install modular X and try your luck
Install xf86 from base system.
