OK; so my Powerbook is on the weird side here. I get the keydown only
(plus autorepeat ad infinitum).

I don't see why backporting wouldn't work (actually this might be due to
real old kernel versions in woody that may lack input event support, but
who in any sane state of mind would use ancient kernels on PowerPC?). OTOH
running Debian testing might be less hassle :-)

Either way you may have to spend some work on pbbuttonsd to make it shut
down on keypress.
