Urg.  This problem goes away when I map all combinations of lctrl
and rctrl to cr, instead of just lctrl...  I had assumed that
this wasn't the problem since it worked before...  My
apologies...  I sent the question quickly and paid for it... :(

Regardless, unless someone correctly this definately means that
it is a bug with syscons, so I'll file a bug report eventually
(unless someone corrects me first).

[heh.  which reminds me of the ~2 pages of bugs (mostly man
typos) I was going to check for in 2.2.2, but wiped-out in my
muffed-up upgrade... :-[

Outnumbered?  Maybe.  Outspoken?  Never!
