 1. Take an XO-1 running Q2E46 firmware, disconnect it from external power.
  2. Remove the battery from the XO-1, then re-insert it.
  3. Boot the XO-1 and press ESC one to break into OFW at the startup
  4. Run "test /keyboard".  The following keys will not register:

  * Language switcher (or ">/<" or "%/X" depending on the model)
  * Frame key
  * Search (magnifying glass) key
  * "fn" key
  * The key with two rectangles on it next the frame key (not sure what it
  * The Grab key next to the "fn" key

 All other keys (F1-F12 equivalents & alphanumeric) along with the gamepad
 for seem to be fine.

 Bug easily reproduced on CSN7480410B, SHC93004B6F, & SHC9300208D.

 More diagnosis is needed, as I just verified with one of these XO-1's that
 the special keys used by Sugar work in 11.3.0 os880.  On the *10B machine
 the problem was not seen until I upgraded from Q2E45 to Q2E46, although I
 would need to downgrade to see if that potentiality is a false clue.
