Default Bug#498205: Solved!

After an entire day of trudging through the kernel sources, I have
figured it out. The problem is that console braille support is
compiled into the standard kernel (new in 2.6.26), which uses
KEY_INSERT to switch between some modes. In the one mode, the braille
support uses the arrow keys, page up/down, home and insert. So, in
effect the 'insert' key will never work in the console. I'd think
that the braille support should be compiled as a module, if possible,
or removed until the code is fixed to not break non-braille users.

The corresponding file is
And the config option is CONFIG_A11Y_BRAILLE_CONSOLE.
