Comment 13 for bug 124406

This was on a 2 year-old Dell Inspiron 6000, with a mobility radeon x300 card, a Pentium M 1.86GHz processor, ipw2200 wireless driver connected via wireless.

I was wondering if it could be related to something else (like NetworkManager) blocking the cpu for a while right when I press a key, so that the key release signal is processed late causing a repeated-key behavior until the key release signal gets through.

The problem appeared at 12:17 on Aug 31 and this is the part of /var/log/daemon.log around that time.
