Bug#586540: kdm on initial start at kfreebsd bootup does not allow keyboard input

Package: kdm
Version: 4:4.4.4-1
Severity: important

In kfreebsd-i386[1] on boot kdm does not accept keyboard input. That is,
it will not allow anything to be typed into the Username box or allow
switching to another virtual console. The mouse still works.

A work around is to choose Menu->"Restart X Server". This causes X to
restart and the keyboard input then works in kdm.

* gdm on kfreebsd-i386[1] also has this issue.
* gdm and kdm on i386[1] do not have this issue.
* xdm on kfreebsd-i386[1] and i386[1] does not have this issue.

An email to the debian-bsd list caused me to investigate this:
