I did a little more research... the problem
seems to be in the KDE window manager...If
you startkde from CDE environment so the KDE
window manager can't start you can type
any character in kconsole...

I am doing a new  build  of  KDE 3.1.2  with GCC 3.2.3   on 
Solaris  9 04/03   right now,  probably be able to report if  I
can type in B's  in a few hours.

Im buliding on a  SB100  so it takesawhile....
