I am now running modular-xorg-server-184.108.40.206nb4. It resolves all the issues
that I had with modular-xorg-server-220.127.116.11nb1. (I had to remove the
Protocol and Device input device options in order to get the arrow keys etc
to work.) The only anomaly I see is that the cursor occasionally jumps to
the left side of the screen. I suppose I should try the recommended nb2
revision but so far it is not a big problem.

I am using the wip keyboard driver and I had to rebuild the mouse and video
drivers. Thanks for the instructions re pixman.

I have (yet) not tried this driver.
Quoted from another message:

This made no difference.
