I think it may be some sort of race condition, such that it only happens
on faster machines; your G3 is 300MHz, correct?

I have not heard of this happening on the (slower, 233MHz) iMac.

...and I'm going to plug your G3 keyboard into a USB port on my 200MHz
PPro in just a little bit, so we'll see if it happens there, too :-)

It's probably worth filing a PR about, that way Lennart can have something
pestering him about it :-)
