Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have had similar experiences with keypresses. Switch to another console (CTRL-ALT-F2)
and the problem will cease as the keyboard driver keeps separate keyboard state for each console. A bad keyboard will affect all consoles equally.
Some keyboards do not handle multiple keypresses correctly in every instance. Simultaneously press three keys might get strange results (that are also not repeatable).
It can be tricky clearing the bad state from the keyboard driver. Can press each of the shift and alt keys to clear them but that is all I can think of.
I have had to kill process several times to clear similar problems because the keyboard has become unusable with a particular console.
Some editors allow a repeat number before a command. Hit the wrong keypresses and you might have got 90 deletes. If the repeat was in the driver or an input repeater (mouse), then it would affect multiple programs.
