If Haiku drops in kdl while caps lock was turned on, there is no way to turn it off. This will make any command typed in kdl session to not work.

I can't reproduce this problem - when in KDL, the caps lock key is completely ignored. In fact, the system will only enter large letters when you press the shift key while inside KDL.

Do you have any special setup in order to reproduce this? (like a KVM switch, a USB keyboard with legacy BIOS support, etc.)

Nope, just simple ps/2 keyboard here. I think you tried F12 to enter in kdl, right? I think it could only be reproducible if you've been forced to enter kdl by a crash (app_server).

Note that what you get when for example app_server (or other GUI servers) crashes is not a KDL. It is a fullscreen GDB that is attached to the thread that crashed. The rest of the system will not be halted in those cases as would be the case if you actually entered KDL. Please clarify if it was indeed a KDL or just a GDB caused by a GUI server crash.

Yes, I think it was app_server crash.
