I just got a new Belkin ErgoBoard and I am having the strangest
problem with it. The caps lock goes on and off semi-randomly.
Sometimes pressing caps lock converts to uppercase, sometimes it does
not. The number row sometimes yields !@#$%^&*()_+ for no reason.

It happens at the console. It happens in xterm.

Does anyone have a clue what is going on? Is it the hardware?
