Hmm, in theory it could be triggering bugs in some buggy keyboard
controller. But then a

while true ; do setleds +caps +numlock ; sleep 1 ; setleds -caps -numlock ;
sleep 1 ; done

should trigger it too.

Anyways; it is normally only intended for special
case kdump or other debugging kernels which tend to not get
much interaction; you shouldn't really set it anywhere else.

I've been also considering to make it always dependent on
a command line option, but that is not done yet.
