So exactly what model is your keyboard? I don't have any trouble with
my self-powered USB hub and/or keyboard in any configuration. I
suspect that your keyboard isn't quite USB compliant and requires a
driver (that may exist by default and load automatically in other
OSs). Some hubs have that problem - and shouldn't.

I've toyed with the idea of hacking a hub and keyboard together to
save space and increase the number of power options.
