Anyone have them? After finally solving(mostly) my kernel panics by installing a fresh OS, I now find the space bar inserting random double spaces on my 2-month old 13" MPB. I've turned key repeat on and off to no avail. I've kept this thing impeccably clean, always stored it in a case, never used it in a dusty environment, etc. Frustrated, to s ay the least (extra space kept in the word "say" to show what I'm going through. Also between what/I'm/going in the last sentence, although the forum seems to display those as single spaces automatically.)

Not sure how I missed that. Great news... I guess this thing is going back. (about 5 double spaces inserted during the typing of this)
When I quote your post I see the double spaces. I feel your pain. Try Unshaky if you're *very* determined to keep the laptop, Unshaky takes care of doubling keys. It won't fix the space inserting itself AFTER the next character (been there) or just not working at all, though (also been there).
