I think this is related to your font tables. If it's in text mode
then you might have changed fonts using one of the font tables in
/usr/lib/kbd/consolefonts which lacks a few chars.
I saw the same thing on a 486 I setup last week, but neigther my 486 or
6x86 do this. The only thing I can think of is that the 486 had it's font
set using setfont while the other two had the font set from the bios with
vga=extended in lilo.
