Thanks for including the attached files. Could you also include your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (or Xorg.0.log.old) from after reproducing the issue?

I don't know if it is relevant, but in order to report a bug that I encounter concerning the touchpad deactivating button (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hal-info/+bug/352864) I have noticed that on my laptop this button is associated with the help key (EV_KEY KEY_HELP (0x8a))
Could it be that the help box pops up because the keyboard associated this key with the help functionality?
