Default Holding ALT While Typing Characters Problem

Please Login to Remove!

Just today started having a weird issue where when I hold ALT and try to type successive periods, it will not type. I can however, tap ALT, then tap the period key and it works. This is the same for all buttons I try to use in conjunction with the ALT key...

I can hold ALT and roll the trackball and it goes from page to page in the message list without a problem, so it knows Im holding the button.

I first tried the standard pull the battery thing, then I used the javaloader to wipe the device and re-install the Cingular .71 OS. The problem persists..

Anyone seen this before or have any tips?

Appreciate it,
Greg

Took the device completely apart, put it back together, and it magically started working again...

Thank god..
