Cracked? No. Someone else is having the same problems as I'm having. I had 
been suspecting that it could have been with the latest packages RedHat 
released this past week or so.

I have no problems as root, or as any user in X. Seems to only affect 
regular users in VTs.

The following is a list of the RPMs I upgraded to this past Friday. It's 
possible that the problem existed since then. If I wasn't having the 
problems in X, then I wouldn't have noticed it until I explored things as 
I did in a VT. I spend most of my time now adays in X.

Of the list above, the RPMs I would suspect right off the bat would be:

initscripts looks like it might contain some interesting console 
controlling functions. Same with util-linux.
