Somewhere around 2.6.29-30 various things went funny in the keyboard
layer for me - notably characters "bleeding" across console switches.

X doesn't touch the pty layer. It touches vt (extensively) and the input
layers. It's vt/kbd access is also very raw so bypasses much of that
layer. That isn't to say tty isn't the cause but look for input layer
changes too.
