I have a Dell Inspiron B130. I have the keyboard layout set for a generic Dell 101-key keyboard sometimes, sometimes a generic Dell keyboard, and sometimes a Dell laptop/notebook Inspiron 6xxx/8xxx. All of these have the same problem, which is new in Intrepid. When I press the 'end' key, it pops up my main menu, which I have set to open up when the windows start key is pressed. This problem lasts until I change the keyboard layout for each session.

For instance, in this session, I started up the computer and noticed the problem. I opened up my keyboard properties dialog and changed it from Inspiron 6xxx/8xxx to 101-key and back again. This fixed the problem. However, this is getting very old. How can I fix this?
