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.
