YES!  It coincided with switching out my motherboard/CPU from an
Athlon to a Pentium D 805, so I was thinking it was probably a
hardware issue.  I'm relieved someone else is having the same problem.
 I'm also having a problem with my USB keyboard in that single key
presses are being repeated several times (i.e., I type 'y' and see
'yyyyy' show up in the terminal).  Also, occasionaly when I plug in a
USB hard drive, my mouse and keyboard both become unresponsive and
very jerky.

I don't have any idea what's causing it, but I'd be happy to be a test
subject to resolve it.
