But he's saying he has the same problem with the keyboard and the
remote, IOTW they both mis-behave in the same way. That doesn't sound
like an lircd.conf problem to me (although your suggested test is
still a good idea).
Sound like a keyboard problem itself, are there any messages in your
boot logs about keyboards that look strange? Does the keyboard work
normally with other programs (like a terminal)? Does it only behave
strangely in X ? Is it possibly a non-standard keyboard??
Questions, questions, but they always seem to come before answers :-)
