Can you confirm that it works correctly when you use RDP?

My keyboard works fine when using 'VNC Viewer' from 'RealVNC'. I can't
imagine that the VNC viewer in use would make any difference though...
especially if you don't see a keyboard at all under gplpv.

Someone once reported that in addition to the 'xen console' and 'xen
vfb' devices, they also saw a 'vkbd' device. I have never seen one of
those, but I have added it to the list of notes that xenstub will attach
to. I assume it's a 'keyboard' device... how many xenstub instances do
you see? Is one of them a vkbd device?
