If am in X and press numlock (resulting in mouse lockup), switch to a 
console and return to X, the keyboard locks up. If I am only at the 
console and have gpm running, the mouse stops working after pressing 
numlock, keyboard locks up after restarting gpm. I didn't try pressing 
numlock while at a console and having X running, but if it was a 
hardware problem, why would it work in another Linux?
