Hi all,

	I'm not sure it is related but I noticed on my ibook 2.2,
kernel <= 2.6.5, that sometimes some keyboards event are missed. With
xev, I keep seeing a key pushed (and repeating) whereas I released it.
To bring the system back to normal, I have to press and release the
repeating key, just to generate a release event, I guess.

Since it seems to be ppc-specific, I suspect adb. Does it make sense ?
Is it a known problem ?
