I don't suppose it is related, but I experience the same problem when I
connect up an old WUSB11 wireless device to any of my systems -
regardless of whether or not the keyboard is PS2 or USB. I've not
bothered to troubleshoot it as the device will on do WEP, but it sure
sounds the same & drives me crazy.
@Dotan: do you have a ref url for the bug?
@Bart: do you have any USB ports/devices enabled?
