 In other words (since context has gone), if you rerun the
rc.sysinit console script, things work again but only after
that has killed your existing session.  I suppose that is down
to the openvt command in that script., which also applies
$MODE_COMMAND to aech terminal.  The script also does
the following:

loadkeys (twice, for $KEYMAP and $KEYMAP_CORRECTIONS)
 to load the selected keymap

setfont to load the selected font

dumpkeys ... loadkeys to handle the legacy characterset.

 I'm wondering if for some reason you need to run some
or all of these steps after coming out of X.  But, as I said
yesterday, this is at the limits of my understanding.

 Perhaps blfs-support might have more clued-up readers
(since the problems seems to only happen after you have
used xorg).

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
