Probably something to do with the kbd driver. I remember something similar

Yes, using gpm. Unfortunately the Xsun servers are very greedy with the
the mouse device so you cannot use gpm and X at the same time. If you want
this behavior, then I suggest using the xserver-xfree86 from woody, and
configure it to use the sunffb driver (for Creator/Elite) which even
supports acceleration and DRI.
