Subject: 3.0_BETA + no keyboard = panic

I noticed the other day that when I try to start X on my i386 3.0_BETA 
machine without a keyboard plugged in, it panics. However, as X has 
switched away from the console (blanked the screen), I can't get any 
panic information. Moreover, attaching a serial console is sufficient to 
make X work. As you can imagine this makes it difficult to debug...

This is an embedded machine running from CF, so I've not got too many 
tools around to use.

Any ideas of avenues of attack to track this down?
