 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.
