its a misconfiguration, sysrq is turned on and this happens to break
the arrow keys on some keyboards.  sysrq needs to stay off on powerpc
for the timebeing, none of the powerpc kernel hackers use it so its
almost invariably broken.  

the other issue is the boot-floppies are broken since the root disk
prompt won't accept enter (or anything) to continue.

IMO shipping a pre kernel when the real one is out is somewhat tacky
at the least...
