[Bug 528720] Re: Keyboard stuck with irqbalance


I haven't kept the hardware where I first saw this issue and I haven't
seen it anywhere else. So as far as I'm concerned you can close this

  Keyboard stuck with irqbalance

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: irqbalance

  Shortly after logging in to the system it stops responding to keyboard
  and mouse (not even SysRq works). The clock is still being updated and
  I can access the system through SSH.

  Sometimes I'm able to start a terminal window with the mouse. When I
  then press one single key that character is repeated indefinitely in
  the terminal window. At the same time the mouse stops responding.

  When I disable irqbalance everything works fine. I haven't seen
  anything odd in the logs (or dmesg) and I don't know how to
  investigate this further.

  The system is a P4 with HT so irqbalance might not be useful anyway,
  but it shouldn't hang the system.
