That's what I assumed. But then how do you explain their apparent

this kernel above? Both ADBKEYCODES and keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes
were set! I assume that one (ADB?) has taken precedence over the other.

Speaking only for myself, I would have liked even a gaudy banner
warning me that mis-configurations of this (with respect to the
kernel) could cause you to have to type-in '2==3' (or something
equally weird) for 'root'. Then I would have known that both kernel
and conole* packages need to be looked into as culprits.
I'm sorry that I can't be of substantial help. I am yet to sift thru
all the past observations, so as to draw a *solid* conclusion about
how/why things happened. Perhaps after some reflection I can weed out
the conflicting observations.
I'll be glad to help with any questions you might have, though, about
eg my setup.

for me...By that time there was no one to speak up for anyone."
