[Bug 1580732] Re: wireless keyboard - repeating characters unattended
I am now advising others not to move to 16.04 until some sort of
information can be gleaned as to what is going on here. To those who
get the problem, it can be really quite a dangerous fault. I would rate
it as a major issue.
To be clear, sometimes it happens ever hour or two, then not for a few
days, then starts again (I reboot as a matter of course at least once a
I am currently trying to decide whether to go back to 14.04 (quite a lot
of work) or trial a new kernel, even though not officially approved for
16.04 as a LTS system (please correct me if I'm wrong on this)
If I could turn on some log somewhere to help diagnose this I would, but
I've no idea what that would be.
Can anyone please help?

wireless keyboard - repeating characters unattended
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
When doing nothing at all, the screen (eg an editor, mail message,
terminal etc) will start displaying '5' rapidly across the screen.
I am a recent ubuntu 16.04 user - a fresh install "Linux TimPassingham
4.4.0-22-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Thu May 5 16:53:32 UTC 2016 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"
I was previously on 14.04 and had no such issues.
My keyboard is a Logitech wireless MK700/710. There is nothing wrong
with it in normal running, nor when using windows (dual-booted).
I am not alone, and it is the same key (5) for others seeing this
issue. See https://askubuntu.com/questions/761522/ubuntu-16-04
