Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake vt-is-UTF8 utility included in console-tools package, and used by Mandriva initscripts, can hang, causing random problems like preventing a local/remote system reboot, unless user take interactive action (#27948). Also, when executed on a terminal different from a linux vt, it can cause errors and make it unresponsive. Updated packages fixes both problems, and also removes setkeycodes limit, better fix for a previous issue alread addressed (#21741).
