Fairly. Just now and then I'll do something like type

"blahblah<alt-f1>"

eg when flipping consoles to check something and the last letter or two
ends up on the screen after the flip (as if the alt-f1 vc switch passes
the data somewhere). I suspect its some kind of asynchronous handling
using the "current console" rather than the "current console at the time
the letter was typed" but it doesn't occur to order so isn't bisectable
and I've never managed to pin down where in the keyboard/vt/tty stack it's
occurring.
