I suspect this is the stuck-repeating key problem which has 
been reported here before, except it's a modifier key (like
Control itself). I've had it happen with my Command key
(on the extended keyboard layout, I guess this does what
Alt normally does), and I couldn't do anything until I 
switched consoles, which uses that key. I think the "cure"
was in re-using the same key, as Michel stated; and that's
consistent with what we see in the visibly-repeating key

Unfortunately, Herbert is in denial...
