The short story is: Tom's keyboard sends all that when he presses caps

press: 0x3a 0xe0 0x66
repeat: 0x3a
release: 0xba 0xe0 0xe6

0xe0 0x66 happens to be the "favorites" key on his keyboard with
internet navigation keys.  I thus believe there's a bug in his keyboard
that needs to be filtered at the kernel level.

The long story can be read on http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=594089

Hmm, the question is whether the real "favorites" key send the same
usage and the fake one after caps lock. Any chance Tom could locate
evtest utility and see what MSC_SCAN events being emitted?


Sure. Here's caps-lock:

Right-shift (the other problem key):
