I posted the same problem a short time ago as well, and disabling the
hardware cursor did help the problem, but didn't fix it completely.
It's so very intermittent that's it's hard to tell if a tweak has changed
anything, but with hw_cursor disabled, the right shift will suddenly
correct itself as quicky as it started. It might be 1 minute after the
problem presents itself, or it might take 15 minutes, usually if it hasn't
healed itself by then I'll reboot to maintain my sanity. I have no idea
what triggers the problem, nor what slaps it back to reality. Again, with
intermittent nature of this, it *appears* that this is the case. At any rate,
with hw_cursor enabled, I've never had it right itself on it's own, but
perhaps I just haven't waited long enough. The worst part is that a couple
end users who have had the problem crop up repeatedly get whized off and just
hit the reset button... I fear that one of these time fsck won't save the
