That makes things worse for me.  The arrow keys don't work with the
"wskbd" protocol, whereas they worked without the "standard" keyboard
protocol.  Alt-control-F{1,2,3,...} still don't work.  (I wasn't seeing
the repeating keys or missing keys problems that you reported.)

Oh, I have only one keyboard, and it's the one built-in to my laptop
(according to dmesg, it's "wskbd0 at pckbd0: console keyboard").
Also I am using i386, not sparc.
