[OpenAFS] Scroll lock

We have our AFS servers on a KVM. The KVM uses the scroll lock button to 
switch between systems. This is creating a problem because the system 
may wind you in scroll lock mode which prevents the backupsys program 
from writing its messages to the console causing it not to finish. Once 
the console is released from scroll lock backupsys finishes and 
everything looks normal. The problem has been this can go for days 
without being noticed.

So I have these questions.

1. Does backup sys actually perform the backups but the date stamp is not
written until the program is finishing?

2. Is there a way to disable in linux the scroll lock button?

3. Is anyone else having this problem?
