This happens all the time under NetBSD when my gvp drive is being
accessed (ie. most noticeable in heavy swapping).  The keys that
stick the most (90% of the time) are the shift keys and control.
Normal keys rarely ever stick but when they do they're more of a hassle
to find (I end up typing all the keys until things turn back to normal).
