Repeated stuck kbd/mouse events
I have a problem with some mouse/kbd events. The system does not seem to
recognise a key-release, which causes for instance a zillion 'q' chars in a shell,
or more subtle; the system thinks "ctrl" or "alt" is pressed and I get unexpected
results when pressing a mouse button or kbd.
Sometimes I have seen some syslog printouts saying something like;
"mouse out os sync. dropping 3 byte"
(not pasted from the log, but written from my own memory)
Has anyone experienced something similar, and found out what it is?
The problem is quite rare, happens maybe once or twice a day.
I am not even sure this is a HW problem at all. I have only seen it in "X"
so it may be ab X-problem. The work-around is to hit the key again when
this happens, and after a lor of frustration I now recognise the symptoms.
I have a Shuttle ST62K box running Gentoo Linux.
