Scratch that, the proposed fix does not work...still investigating.  I 
do not see all of the issues mentioned in those threads, but I do see a 
few of them... up arrow key does not work and invokes the gnome 
screenshot, Alt+F2 does bring up the run dialog box as expected, after I 
return from console 2, Ctrl+C sends Ctrl+Alt+Bksp (interesting), oh so 
fun...OTOH, it just works with the kbd driver as opposed to evdev.  
There are reports that KDE has some of the same problems.  More tomorrow.
