The keyboard doesn't seem to work after 2nd boot. I experimented with X configuration to no avail. But then I rebooted and it started working. Does Xorg need an extra boot before it starts working?

This still happens and is more consistent these days. I've found that if I restart just after the boot then the keyboard starts working.

Still don't know what the cause of the problem is, however.

I think this is caused by the powered USB hub. If I disconnect some devices before boot it seems to be okay. This is a known problem if you search for it on RPi's hub.

The fix is to get a better USB hub. Closing issue since it's not a software problem.
