Yes, now cursor stay on correct position.

Not it was not case, it was a missing --keymap argument.

It seems that --font argument passed to console client, and console
starting fails with message:
# console -d vga --font=8x13.bdf -d xkb --keymapfile=keymap/hurd
# --xkbdir=/etc/X11/xkb --keymap=ru /dev/vcs
console unrecognized option `--font=8x13.bdf'
Try `console --help' ...

Is this correct?

Now it works fine. I think is even more stable than pc_kbd driver :)
