:This occured first at least a week ago. After after a clean install and 
:rebuilding yesterday's GENERIC kernel + the changes below, a USB 
:keyboard becomes over-sensitive to key presses. This bug actually 
:renders login impossible using the USB keyboard. Attempts to login, 
:comedically, look like this:
:login: rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrooooooooooooooooootttttttttttt
:This behavior does not occur with a PS/2 keyboard.
:recompile kernel with
:device vga
:options VESA
:device sc
:options SC_PIXEL_MODE
:edit /etc/rc.conf
:allscreens_flags="-g 100x37 VESA_800x600"

    I'll bet your system time has gone whacky too.  Has it?
