wireless (infrared) keyboard and problems

hi, i recently bought a microsoft (i know, they suck but they make good hardware) wireless natural keyboard.
it's an infrared keyboard. intellitype wireless keyboard according to the manufacturer.
now, every time i an on the command line (without X running, just plain linux bash shell) every few keystrokes i got a messages to stderr saying that the key code is unrecognised.
the keyboard has a special key called f-lock, that changed the function keys from the keyboard to some multimedia ms functions, so my guess is that the whole layout is screwed.
on the other hand, since i ONLY use the normal keyboard (101 US keys) it shouldn't be problem.

any ideas?

this doesn't happen under X ( i checked the log and there is not error)

thanks so mcuh
