Second problem: using gdm and gnome-session, the mouse stops working

freshly installed with X 4.1.0 three weeks ago (but not on
previously-installed continuously-upgraded systems), and switched to
/dev/gpmdata, which solved it for some time, then it broke again, so
I removed gpm. Unfortunately, there is no /dev/gpmdata on PPC, and
with the X keymap broken I kinda "need" gpm to work at the console,
so I haven't tried removing it.
I get the same thing with KDE/kdm after pulling down the updates in
testing. The X cursor does not respond to mouse movement, and
restarting the X server fixes it.
Yup, this problem is not solved. (Didn't really expect it to be with a
keyboard mapping change.) Nice to hear a "me too". :-)
I haven't really had much time to look in to that, or the other
problem that popped up at the same time (fonts in KDE are completely
screwed up - all the fonts keep getting set to Agate, and Agate isn't
a very useful terminal font).
You know, I had a number of fonts substituted by one I didn't recognize,
now that you say this, I checked and it's Agate. Very bizarre!
I'd call these "important" bugs, how about you? Do you want to file
this bug report?
