It happens in single user mode too.  It's new behavior in 7.0 Beta 3 as
compared to 6.2.  Might be useful to know if you can reproduce it, just
go to a local tty perhaps after a restart and see if your scroll lock
toggles.  Mine stays on and nothing but console messages makes it
through (if on the primary tty) but fortunately it honors commands typed
in the blind
