I just tried ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-f9 and that did not work. It's not a huge
problem, as unplugging and replugging fixes it. I was reporting it because
it seemed like a USB problem, but I can believe your guess that it isn't a
kernel issue. X is pretty fragile, messy stuff these days. I've seen plenty
of what Theo de Raadt has had to say about it. They've got a guy in the
OpenBSD development group whose only job is to try to put a working X
together from the chaos for their releases.
