"All Controls" Keyboard Preferences Keep Turning Off

    Every so often the keyboard access setting on my computer switches from "All Controls" (my preferred option) to "Text boxes and lists only."

    It doesn't seem to match up with any specific event: logging out, rebooting, shutting down, etc. Just every once in a while it'll change back. Sometimes it'll last two weeks, sometimes it'll just last two hours before it goes back to "Text boxes and lists only."

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Anyone know how to fix it?

    BTW, I'm using a Mac Pro 2x2GHz running 10.4.11

    could you by any chance be pressing ctrl+F7 (crtl+fn+F7 on a laptop)? As this is the shortcut to switch between the preferences.

    No. I don't think I've ever pressed the F7 key in 20 years of using computers. ;)
