debian amd64 (both stable/lenny and testing/squeeze)
(1) unable to move between X and a virtual console with the
key combination [control]+[function key 1, 2, 3, or 6];
the only combinations which work are
[control]+[f4] and [control]+[f5]
(2) unable to move between virtual consoles other than
4 and 5 with the key combination [alt]+[function key]
(3) unable to move from a virtual console back to X

The Apple keyboard is the only USB keyboard available
for testing at the moment.
A PS/2 keyboard does not exhibit the problem.
The Apple USB keyboard does not exhibit the problem on an
i386 system with Intel processor and Intel motherboard.
Has anyone else seen a problem of this type?
