  Volume keys combination locks volume up or down and keyboard

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 8.10;
  On my Packard Bell Easy Note laptop one single press of  "Fn + Volume up (F4 key)" (or "Fn + Volume down (F3 key)") sends Voume level respectively to the maximum or minimum, no way to change choice after first pressing of the key combination. Pressing any key on the keyboard doesn't sort any effect, can't even write on already opened applications, menus on the status bar become unavailable, need to log out with ctrl+alt+del or (reboot with ctrl+alt+backspace) only keyboard combinations which sort any effect. After re-logging in, keyboard available again, volume set to max or min (depends on what pressed before logging out). Nothing changed in the past 3 days even after the vaious updates. On the same machine with Ubuntu 7.04 volume key combination worked without any problem,with the possibility to change the volume level "step by step".
