Apparently someone suddenly got a good idea that you need to be root to 
reprogram the keyboard, and got a patch merged into the Linux kernel:


The result is that the keyboard unit is no longer able to catch keys like 
escape, shift+tab alt+F1..F12 etc. on the Linux console. This affects the 
Free Pascal IDE and any other program using the keyboard unit.
