I have the same problem with a Belgian keyboard
If i reboot the machine i can log in the console with as many normal users if i
like and the alt key works normal, from the moment i log in as root on 1 of the
consoles the alt key produces a '0' when pressed in all tty's... even at the
login prompt the problem is there... under x the alt key sometimes work normal
and after typing some other text it suddenly generates some unprintable chars
followed by bbbbbb... endlessly repeating until another key is pressed.
can't reproduce with current release.
