They now work!  I'm fairly certain they wasn't working at first, maybe
this is related to the copy/paste key combinations not working at
first.  But I started a new Terminal activity and Shift+Ctrl+C/V
aren't working (until I activated the Edit menu) and yet those console
key combinations worked from the beginning.

The ordering is different than it was before, so I added a section to
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Terminal_Activity#The_Console , dunno if
this warrants a release note .  Also, Ctrl+Alt+Activity View (F4?)
takes me to a blank screen with an underlined cursor, and it later
filled up with some kernel messages.  This "read-only console output"
session seems new, I think in 10.1.3 console output appeared in one of
the regular VTs.

Almost certainly.  Unfortunately I only have the one XO-1.
