Critical Virtual Terminal flashing bug etc after upgrade to Karmic.

Bug Description

After upgrading to Karmic, when I switch to a virtual terminal via ctrl + alt + F1 or the like, I get a weird sequence of illegible chars. It appears to be an odd pattern of flashing underline chars "_" as described on:

I see no VT/tty1 information, but when I type the underline char changes to the text I write.

I've had at least 6 comparatively critical bugs since upgrading to Karmic, and I unfortunately don't have the time to keep dealing with them, and am going to have to do a complete reinstall of Hardy or Debian on my home servers.
