PE 2800 and strange crazy keyboard problem

Got a PE 2800, fully updated RHES 3.0. The keyboard goes crazy somtimes
when I open up a gnome terminal. It's like some kind of random key is
stuck on the keyboard. Characters are really sent to the shell and can't
break it. I can still use the mouse, so I open up a text editor and the
keystrokes keep comming even into that program.
Not until to flip to CTRL-ALT-F1 then right back to CTRL-ATL-F2 does the
keyboard stop. Then the keyboard works great for a while. It seems to only
go bazerk when I leave it alone and come back to do something on the server.
The keyboard's good - I swapped keyboards.
If someone can help me figure this out I'd appreciate it. Some
- Maybe the screen save kicking in does it.
- Maybe stopping the unicode service is doing it.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
