Is that inside X?

That is something you should _not_ do, especially not within
a network you don't trust (see also: The Internet). Usually
FTP access can't be trusted (too much plaintext), and
especially for root this is a threat to security. Better
use scp (SSH) for transfering files in an "FTP-like way".

That is a good step regarding security. Still make sure
your system hasn't been compromized. Also be sure to change
your root password, because you _never_ know. :-)

When this happens inside X, it sounds a bit familiar. Does
the keyboard "start working again" when you move the mouse?

I'm not sure if _this_ is still an issue:

Make sure the keyboard is working as expected, for example
by testing it in a non-X session (text mode terminal).
