I seen some issues, too, also prior to KDE 4.5.1 already. Some keys do not 
work as expected. For example sometimes in Konsole the Return key does not 

Now with KDE 4.5.1 I had some problem in screen lock password dialog: It 
fed keys of my password to the other widgets as well, as if I had pressed 
Alt with seem. I was not able to unlock the desktop without killing the 
locker process from a tty. I was not able to reproduce it so far.

Maybe thats some X.org issue? I still use X.org mouse and keyboard drivers 
as I didn't figure how to do the udev / Linux Input thing statically. And 
dynamically it didn't yet exact the results I wanted. I don't want mouse 
clicks via touchpad for example. And I think also the keyboard layout was 
wrong. Maybe own tweaks could be done more easily with xorg.conf.d but I 
didn't yet look into it and still have my quite static in regard to input 
devices X.org configuration file.

I am using some special 2.6.36-rc3 at the moment, but I had those keyboard 
issue at times with 2.6.33 already. Sometimes they go away when I switch 
to a TTY and then back to X.org. On other times I restarted X.

I never had any issues with the keyboard on a TTY tough, so I think its an 
X.org issue.
