I've seen this on Raspbian Linux as well, and it seemed to be related to
the power (or lack there of) on the USB ports. I haven't encountered it
since I did the "Pi-pass" mod to bypass the F1/F2 polyfuses on the USB
ports (it's a Gen1 board). The keyboard in question was a run-o'-the-mill
Microsoft USB keyboard.

I'm not saying there aren't issues with the USB driver, just pointing out
that FreeBSD isn't the only sufferer on this particular point.
