I think I remember that my TiBook detected it's keyboard once as ANSI as
well. I think that was after I played around with the PMU hardware (had
the box completely in pieces).

For an unknown reason, ir worked agan later. Don't know what I did, but
doing a thorough OF reset (cmd-opt-P-R multiple times in a row) should
be a first thing to try.
