SubjectConsole driver problem ?

I've just discovered a small problem I'm having with the console and
Linux 2.0.

Problem description:
While using VC1 (ALT-F1 on my computer), the driver seems to miss some
caracters (even when typing very slowly so it's not a typing overload :-) )
Sometimes caracters do not appear on the screen when I type then, instead
I hear a beep. This is even with a just-rebooted system. It happends ONLY
with VC1, not VC2,3,4 or whatever, and X11 works perfectly.

Kernel version :

I see this problem since early 2.0. I just re-tried 2.0 and it works well.
I have 2.0.16 here and I have the problem.

Any idea or comments ?
