funny you should mention this because I just had that happen with one
user on our network but it was Fedora 7

This user couldn't generate anything on the keyboard and it simply
didn't respond to caps lock, number lock, scroll lock or anything that I
could tell but restarting, this would occur after KDM login. Other users
on the same box had no problems so I figured it was something with KDE
user profile. I moved ~/.kde directory and logged in as user again and
the problem was fixed. I don't know which file it was in the .kde folder
as there were many files with the current date/time.

I sort of stopped looking for the cause of the problem because it
appeared to be a big time suck.
