[Bug 1580732] Re: wireless keyboard - repeating characters unattended
I tried the 4.6 (yakety) kernel and didn't get the problem. Being
unwilling to stay on an unsupported combination (preferring to stay on
standard LTS) I went back to standard xenial (4.4.0-22-generic
#40-Ubuntu) and have not seen the problem now for a few days, even with
'Repeat keys' back on.
Are others who were affected still getting the problem?
I try to keep up to date with all updates, and see that there have been
quite a few, including some to udev on 24/5/16.
Has a fix been issued, deliberately or otherwise?

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
