1) Hit CTRL-Q
2) rlogin and execute "kbd_mode -a >/dev/console" as root
3) rlogin and execute "stty sane >/dev/console" as root
4) make sure nobody is running a "fake login" program
5) rlogin and execute "startx" or "openwin" as root and then exit cleanly
7) kill getty
As it turns out, the problem was a loose keyboard cable (sigh) so I don't
know which of the above might have worked...
