I have a keyboard in grub.

It is when Ubuntu loads that the keyboard and the mouse disappear.

Unfortunately the recovery mode is no different, they're "disabled" in
that mode too.

I've loaded a Live CD and am looking at the filesystems from that.
But if I try to boot from any form of installed version I get the same
symptoms... as soon as the little twiddly "working" thing comes up
that's my keyboard and mouse gone, so I can't enter usernames,
passwords or anything... and same happens if I do a Ctrl-Alt-F1 or
similar during the boot up process... as soon as it gets to a certain
stage the keyboard just "falls off the planet".

Ho hum,
