I have a similar problem as you describe in this posting using a SuperMicro
X8SIL-F motherboard with onboard IPMI.  The console redirection works fine
during boot until the OS (pfSense - FreebSD 7.2 Release p5) boots and then I
can't enter anything from the keyboard.  Screen output is OK.  I notice
there is also no usb keyboard being detected during boot - instead a usb
mass storage device is added.  Thus I suspect I am seeing the same issue as
you did.

When you mentioned "When I set it to disable USB Mass Storage when no image 
is loaded, the ukbd came alive..."  how did you do that?
