Re: Keyboard mystery

Hardware would have been my first thought. One of the three Unicomp keyboards I ordered was defective
out of the box, and had to be returned for repair or replacement. Certain keypresses either did nothing, or
"machine-gunned" that letter -- though intermittently. If _that_ can happen, why not a return of the wrong
scan code ? But since you were dealing with more than one set of hardware, that is essentially ruled out.

 Another data point:

 The problem occurs when I load KBD
 files other than my customary one,
 e.g., the factory-issued XY4.KBD and
 XY4-3.KBD files. This decisively
 rules out the KBD file, I think. And
 it's not U2, because the same
 thing happens even if I don't load U2.
 It's not hardware, because the
 hardware hasn't changed on either of my
 machines. vDosPlus hasn't
 changed in quite a while, more's the
 pity. Could it be a Windows
 update? No change in Windows keyboard
 behavior, so that doesn't seem

 Curiouser and curiouser....
