I'm having the same problem (in fact, I posted about this over in
the linux hardware group.)
I'm not hitting any keys on the keyboard other than <tab> and <spacebar>.
I still get it.
Most annoying. Perhaps an incompatibility with this particular Cirrus Logic
In a previous life, I used to do network testing with laptops. Cirrus Logic
caused *major* headaches for everyone.
