I don't think it is the hardware, as I have exactly the same problem
(always had) except for the caps lock ... I haven't seen that yet.
My system is an A3000 with 16/2MB ram 2 SCSI-HDs running NetBSD 1.0A
and yes the server is Xdaniver too. But I remember it happend with the
old XAmiga-Mono server too.
