What usb does your kernel support - is it compiled to use keybdev.o (under
Input Core Support) or the limited boot protocol mode usbkdb.o (under USB
Support) section... you definitely want to be using keybdev - other than
that, perhaps trying it on your friends computer?  Offhand I can't think
of anything beyond that being your problem, unless it's some magic that
hotplug is doing for me...
