Comment 30 for bug 124406

kervel: i found another instance of this problem on a thinkpad (r40e) ... try adding this to your boot (grub) parameters ... ec_intr=0

might be a fluke, but after a few reboots ... i can still type (on gutsy, using liveCD)

i added acpi=off to my boot parameters. will post back if it stops working but ... i've tried putting the system under load and no repeats yet!

the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog :)
