This is probably related to the fact that I use 2.6.7-Ruby multi-user Linux. I'll ask there...

2.6.7-ruby multi-user linux? What's that? If it is a kernel version, I

It is a vanilla 2.6.7 kernel with patches applied so that there can be multiple keyboards that handle their own vt's. That way you get multiple videao cards, plug in multiple monitors, each with their own kbd and mouse. Works great.
