function keys not recognized on amd64 - apple usb keyboard



system:

    apple model a1243 usb keyboard (only 1/4-inch thick)
    asus motherboard m3a78-t
    amd athalon 64x2 3800+ dual-core processor
    debian amd64 (both stable/lenny and testing/squeeze)

problem:

(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
    with the key combination [alt]+[f7]

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?
