Ah, I think I know what it is.

When logged in as root I use tcsh (to avoid linker issues if my build
of CURRENT goes south), and I also am using the following settings in
rc.conf (note keyrate):


If you take tcsh, run it from left to right with the keyboard,
semi-continuously with keyrate="fast", characters will disappear on
the console.

I've attached a tarball with a typescript for you, my dmesg, and
uname. Let me know if there's anything else you need.
