I've been experiencing a quite annoying problem with XFree86 3.12
NetBSD 1.1. Occasionally, the keyboard gets wedged. The mouse is
still functional, so that I can select an "exit" function from a window
manager menu. When the xdm login screen returns, usually (but not always)
the keyboard reawakens. In case it matters, I'm using the pc3 console
If I happen to be running xev before this phenomenon occurs, I can verify
that no X keyboard events are being generated when the keyboard is wedged
(no surprise there).
I tried the obvious step of replacing the keyboard, to no avail.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
