Hmm, I did the initial development on bpx while using a USB wireless
keyboard (I ended up moving to a non-USB KVM for my final development).
So the keyboard wouldn't be the first thing I'd suspect, but I suppose
it's certainly possible.  Make mention of it in the bug report and I'll
test that config out myself.  It's possible that the installation
environment is different than the regular booted up environment and
handles USB differently.

Excellent.  There's about two weeks left before UDS.  I don't know if
there's still much time left for getting new items on the agenda, but if
the specs can be fleshed out by then, I'll try to make time for
discussing them even if we have to do it outside the regular schedule.
