Right at the moment I am happily typing along but waiting for next Freeze..
Anyway for those interested:
Apparently, Debian is seeing this problem also with the 3.5 kernel. One of the suggested work arounds for Some Keyboards is to load in the hid_generic module.. But the Crew at Sabayon has already taken care of that one. Obviously I continue to have a problem including with the hid_generic module loaded... no relief..
So, temporarily, (unlike any of my other installs) I loaded the IBM Thinkpad T61 keyboard which is like mine.
I will wait and watch this configuration and post back.
Criticism accepted for Solutions that work. ;^)
