Volume keys problem


I am using debian testing on my laptop.
The problem is after long press volume key doesn't release and keeps pressed until another click.
For example, output of xev:
Code:
KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x1e00001,
    root 0x167, subw 0x0, time 502956, (115,530), root:(1078,561),
    state 0x10, keycode 122 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

    state 0x10, keycode 122 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume), same_screen YES,

If this is a physical volume key, I'd pop the cap off and make sure that nothing's worked its way underneath.

I have tried that.
The PC is new so I believe this is not a hardware problem.
