Version: 2.6.26-4
Severity: important

/etc/init.d/console-screen.sh (found by set -x in the script). At this
point not even the magic keys work (at least on this USB connected

linux-image-2.6.25-2-686 version 2.6.25-7 works fine on this machine.
My home machine does not display this bug at all.

The only apparantly relevant discussion I could find is at
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/3/13/381 , maybe this helps.

The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable and tell
us whether the problem persists. If so, we should report it upstream
to the kernel.org developers.

The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
