This doesn't seem to be unusuall.
Though I haven't tried ( and don't recomend it ) much the same effect
should be obtained by simply unplugging the keyboard from a running PC,
since this is exactly what you're doing under VMWare with the escape sequence.
I see it too, and expect the rest of us attempting VMWare also see it, but I didn't
consider this relevent to the Hurd, since it is caused strictly by VMware.
I also suspect "other systems" also see this error, but don't report it.
Eleventh Law of Acoustics:
In a minimum-phase system there is an inextricable link between
frequency response, phase response and transient response, as they
are all merely transforms of one another. This combined with
minimalization of open-loop errors in output amplifiers and correct
compensation for non-linear passive crossover network loading can
lead to a significant decrease in system resolution lost. However,
of course, this all means jack when you listen to Pink Floyd.
