FWIW, I've had problems with 7.0's boot loader locking up too.  I'm running
a -stable compile from march and during bootup, if I make too many
keypresses the bootup sequence freezes.  Once loader has handed off to the
kernel then everything's fine, but I can't make any use of loader's or
bootX's command lines without the system freezing.  I'm careful not to touch
my keyboard during bootup!

Keyboard and mouse are both USB.
