    After reading a recent thread, Foocha mentioned his 'm' key on his Powerbook repeatedly registering an 'm' long after he pressed the key. Therefore, he had problems typing because there were so mmmmmmmmany m's registering.

    I have the same problem with my spacebar on my RevB TiBook 550. Anyone else having the same problem? Heard of Apple aknowledging it?

    Let us know! I thought I had broken it or something when installing my RAM, but I was so damn careful I couldnt imagine I could have hurt it.

    i remember when that was a system error-that the last key pushed would just repeat forever, until you restarted. haven't had the problem since OS 6

    Hmmm

    Im using 9.2---the only reason I find it strange is that the key functions normally physically. It doesnt stick and doesnt feel weak. Also, if I barely graze my finger on the spacebar, it also registers a keystroke. Its like it is ultra-sensitive.
