If I've been using Oneiric for a few hours it seems that whilst typing a reply (for example) my keyboard will just stop working. No key works at all, even the arrow keys or return key.
It only happens after it's been used for a few hours though.
I have to log out and log in again to get it working. If I restore the Firefox tabs that I was previously using the keyboard still won't work. I have to quit FF and restart it. Then the keyboard is fine again.
What do you think people? Firefox problem or Oneiric problem?
Anybody else seeing the same?
Thanks

oops, sorry, I made a mistake. This problem is on my gnome3/gnome-shell system, not the normal Oneiric.

Interesting output from log file viewer though :-)

Whichever daemon that writes logs must have been trying to use your keyboard! :p
