SubjectPS/2 Mouse can freeze 1.99.12
This is a "blind" bug report I am currently not subscribed to this
list so this can be a known problem.

I got a new Pentium last monday with Triton chipset and PS/2 mouse. I
decided to use 1.99.12 and kerneld. I found if I hit the button of
the PS/2 mouse when the driver is not installed the keyboard freezes.
No console switching, nothing. It is reproducible. I still have not
investigated if this affects console output or telnet. In case this
has an influence it is a W... 95 keyboard.
It does not happen if I load the driver, unload it and then use the
mouse, only on a "fresh" Linux. The conclusion is: use insmod in the
startup or a non-modularized driver but for now avoid letting kerneld
loading the module unless you are using xdm.
