I have a Toshiba (Tecra 8000) and saw that strange double key problem.
But it was inside vmware so I was thinking it was not a Knoppix issue.

This confirm what I think of that laptop maker
(was there an issue with floppy drive too).
My next laptop (company decision) will be from another vendor. ;-)
