I hadn't seen this problem for weeks and thought maybe it was fixed,
and then it happened again (keyboard suddenly not responding, but
other keyboard working OK). Given the above message I tried holding
down shift for 10 seconds and lo and behold, the keyboard was back
working. So it does seem that the problem is the 'random but rare'
enabling of this feature without actually holding shift down for 10
seconds (or at least I'm fairly sure I didn't, but will keep an eye
out for doing it now).
A way to confirm if the slowkeys feature is currently engaged would
allow me to confirm this more directly next time.
