hmm.. I saw that recently too, but I figured it had something to
do with the odd usb keyboard I was using, or the kvm switch I had
connected. The problem "fixed" itself when I plugged in a ps/2
keyboard, so I didn't think much of it.
I think I saw the problem with the kernel from around August 30th,
but I can try again with a more recent one later today.
