Console instance not accepting ":" char

Hi!

When I launch a new instance (tiny, small) it booted OK and I was able to get a login prompt (Cirros login:). However, the console don't accept ":" char, that is one char of default cirros password. Most of chars accept shift+key, but some don't accept shift key, for example I can type "[", but not "{" that is the char for shift + [ keys. Some special chars are yet accepted, like "<" (shift + ,). I'm using fresh devstack deployment in Ubuntu 12.4 LTS (started with minimal package), controller and compute server for test in the same VM. I've tried access using different VMs (Windows/Chrome and Ubuntu/Firefox) with the same behaviour.

Please let me know if you need more specific info about this environment.

Thanks in advance for your time.
