Can you provide a reproduction case? I don't notice any sort of delay when
switching between text vtys, or changing keyboard focus in X. I've been
using 4BSD the entire time.

Are you switching between X and text vty's? There's always been a delay
there, worse on my amd64 box than i386, but I don't do that regularly;
much easier to just pop another xterm :)
