On Saturday morning, I cvs update'ed my pkgsrc, deleted all packages and 
rebuilt the package subset that I normally use.  Running the new version of 
xorg, I see massive problems with keyboard input.  Both key down and key up 
event are frequently missed (input characters are missing and keys keep 
repeating until another key is pressed).  Also, the ctl-alt-esc and 
ctl-alt-fn combinations are ignored.  Mouse events appear normal.  I have 
also seen Xwindows hang a few times (some of hangs can be revocered by logging 
in over the network and killing the X server).  On further examination, it 
appears that the problems are only present when running a KDE component such 
as konquerer (I do not have to run the KDE desktop to see the problems).

The (relevant) xorg package changes appear to be:

-modular-xorg-server-1.2.0nb2 Xorg X11 Server from modular X11
+modular-xorg-server- Xorg X11 Server from modular X11

-xf86-input-mouse-1.2.1 Modular Xorg mouse driver
-xf86-video-ati-6.6.99 Modular Xorg ATI video driver
+xf86-input-keyboard-1.2.0 Modular Xorg keyboard driver
+xf86-input-mouse-1.2.2 Modular Xorg mouse driver
+xf86-video-ati-6.6.3nb1 Modular Xorg ATI video driver

although I doubt the ATI driver change is relevant.

Reverting these packages (in particular modular-xorg-server- seems 
to resolve all the issues.
