Thanks for the ideas Troy. Just tried this, without effect. The keyboard 
appears to be setup properly in X.org... 

I just tried another keyboard, and it does the exact same thing. The symptoms 
are very strange:

- keys pressed several times will cause the caps lock LED to toggle on/off
- the number pad keys work fine
- the keyboard layout appears to be somewhat mixed up, although some letters 
appear to match the keyboard

Again, the keyboard works fine from the console...
