When I saw in synaptic that the mouse and kbd drivers were to be removed, I
clicked them for ugrade as well and (manual install) thus was able to keep
them so had no problem. If you want your "old" console look, choose "vga" when
that new console-setup configures.
Implication is that the olde mouse and keyboard drivers should no longer be
used but we now know better :-)
