Yes, that version is still a bit of a hack with its defaults. :)

Try this: 

console -d vga -d xkb --keymapfile=keymap/hurd --xkbdir=/etc/X11/xkb --keymap 
en_US /dev/vcs 2>/dev/null

And when you report something, please show the commands you use
exactly like you typed them (you had xkbd, -xkbdir) because it makes
it hard to find the problems because of that.

The Compose file should not be copied to /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/compose,
those files are not compatible.  Can you restore the old one?

The Compose file should be used in another way, like I explained in

I think this problem was caused by the keymapfile argument, it
should've been relative.

I hope to release the new xkb plugin later this month.  This one does
not have the stupid debug output (this causes the cursor to move, fix
this with 2>/dev/null).  And the new version will have support for the
XFree 4.3 syntax.  I will try to clean the code up and add
accessibility support (AccessX in XFree).

Please keep testing it, I really appreciate that.  It is still under
active development and testing will help a lot.
