occasionally (say, 1 out of 20?) my keyboard get's killed when I move
the mouse in X/Windows. I suspected that the SB16 is guily, but now
I changed the setup to use irq=7 in both dos and linux environment,
and I also changed from a i486/100 asus apv4 to a i586/133 asus tp2(?),
still the same behaviour.
reading from the keyboard IO-port will revive the keyboard, but it will
immediately block as soon as I move the mouse (as mentioned in the
subject, it's a ps/2 mouse) again.
I sorry that I can't reliably reproduce this error. Seems to be a
sporadic hardware error ... a missed interrupt ? what can be the cause?
