    The strangest thing just happened to me on my MBP (10.6.3). I was messing around with the desktop, and I moved the dock to the left side of the screen, and I selected to have it hidden. From there, I went about what I was doing, and when I went back to my document (a Bean document) the keyboard was not responsive at all. I logged out, logged in, and things were fine. I activated the dock again, and then the keyboard went out again.

    I logged out, logged in, moved the dock to its original position, and now things are fine. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? I tried searching (not too thoroughly; this is kind of an urgent thing, and I didn't want the keyboard to go out on me again...), but I didn't see anything.

    Just a weird occurence.

    Nope, never heard of this before. But, try removing the file from ~/Library/Preferences.

    Seems like I am blaming the wrong folks. This just happened to me again, and it happened after invoking "Show and Autofill" for Things 1.3.3. I had to quit everything, log out, and log back in. I think attempted to recreate the problem, and that was it.

    I've sent a support question to Cultured Code about it; hopefully they'll respond back soon w/ an easy fix. I use "Show and Autofill" a lot to link emails with todos; I need that functionality to be working.
