I suspect you are seeing the same phenomenon as described in the following Ubuntu Forums thread:

'r' key not working in terminal

That user used the wrong method of blacklisting the pcspkr module, and it stopped his 'r' key from working in Terminal (but not the 'R' key). Looks suspiciously similar to what you are seeing.

How exactly did you try to blacklist the pcspkr module?
