Interesting.  I can type  at the login prompt, but not when I login
on console or via remotely via ssh.

When I do login, all of the other characters do work, except the 
character.

I don't know if this is related or not, but when I type :

-bash-2.05b$ export TERM=cons25
-bash-2.05b$ reset
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: reset: Undefined symbol "_nc_rootname"
-bash-2.05b$ export TERM=cons25l1
-bash-2.05b$ reset
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: reset: Undefined symbol "_nc_rootname"

However when I execute "reset" on console it works.

Coming back to the  issue, is there a problem with 4.8-RELEASE UK keymap?
