    Problem appears to be from hardware, Vojtech Pavlik helped me a bit to
    track it down. Hardware occasionally doesn't send the key release
    signal after a key pressed signel.

    System is IBM Thinkpad R30, CPU permanently running on low speed
    (700MHz), no speed step (unsupported chipset).

    Should I still test w/ clock=pit?


    To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
    are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic
    and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
