Oddly I have a Latitude e7220 that I get this on almost constantly 
across all keys, that it'll just repeat to infinity on at times after 
furious typing and/or backspacing.  Hitting two keys at the same time 
seems to trigger it.  I'm amazed I haven't thrown it across a room at 
times, but I really do like the device otherwise that I've learned to 
almost just deal with it.

I figured it was more a defective keyboard I've been too lazy to try and 
deal with clueless dell support with testing anything around linux, but 
interesting others see this too.  Maybe some sort of hardware or 
acpi/bios level defect?
