hmm, could it be that ' is now a "dead" key? Does anything happen
if you press the space bar afterwards? Failing that you could probably
patch it by adding the missing keysyms with xmodmap. /usr/openwin/demo/xev
will show you the keycode of that key.

Same OS, much older machine :-(, but Unix keyboard. The only problem I
noticed is that key repeat is no longer working. This is a known problem
with the xkb extension of Xsun, one that Sun apparently doesn't care about.

I don't use dtlogin, but start up X the old-fashioned way. Anyway the server
line I am using is
/usr/openwin/bin/X :0 +kb -dev /dev/fb defdepth 24
