_never_ get gpm-root to work reliably; after a few menus with a
modifier key pressed, the keyboard locks up for a couple of minutes,
then spits out a bunch of kernel debug messages "Keyboard timed out".
I have a Hercules-compatible, not VGA, but I believe this is the same
problem Seryozha is seeing. Had this from the beginning of time,
starting with 1.x kernels and pre-1.x gpm, now I'm at kernel 2.0.29
and gpm 1.10 and it's still there. I've almost accepted that I had a
buggy keyboard and/or controller, but now after this post I think
again it _is_ a kernel problem and should be fixed.
Posted about it here once or twice, but response was underwhelming :-(
