This is a strange one
For some reason, the Hash key (#) doesn't seem to want to work. As you can imagine, it's hell when trying to access irc channels
The thing which makes me think this isn't a keyboard error, is the fact that the key still works. By this, I mean that when I lock the screen, pressing the hash key will bring up the password dialog, like pressing any other key would do. Also, strangely enough when I do Control+Alt+F1 to get to a terminal I can login etc etc but upon pressing the hash key to test it, I'm thrown back into my desktop manager.
Anyone ever heard of anything similar? They keyboard has just been sat here on my desk... It's just strange that the key still works in windows and is basically still there in linux, but shows no hash, instead just a changed function.
I only noticed this problem after upgrading my kernel from 2.6-test9 to 2.6.1. The keyboard is USB and it's a UK keyboard (hash key located next to return, above shift).
