New submission from Alexander Polakov <polachok at gmail.com>:

If you start xdm with xdm_enable=YES in /etc/rc.conf keyboard won't work at all 
(can't switch to console or anything). If you start xdm from user, it works.

Here's the relevant part of Xorg.0.log:
(**) Option "CoreKeyboard"
(**) Keyboard0: always reports core events
(**) Option "Protocol" "standard"
(**) Keyboard0: Protocol: standard
(**) Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
(**) Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbRules: "xorg"
(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbModel: "pc105"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "us,ru(winkeys)"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbLayout: "us,ru(winkeys)"
(**) Option "XkbOptions" "grp:caps_toggle,grp_led:scroll,compose:lwin"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbOptions: "grp:caps_toggle,grp_led:scroll,compose:lwin"
(**) Option "CustomKeycodes" "off"
(**) Keyboard0: CustomKeycodes disabled
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Keyboard0" (type: KEYBOARD)
(EE) KbdOn: tcsetattr: Bad file descriptor
