As I said, these should be unrelated things. The keyboard / mux
code doesn't know how many screens are allocated - there will
always be only one logical keyboard instance. (The X server is
supposed to close() the wskbd if its screen is switched away from.)

As I said, I had problems with wsmux too - I always got
EBUSY when I tried to get screenblank(1) working.
I'm afraid the reference count logics is broken, but
at the moment I don't have time to look at it.

best regards
