Disproof: my girlfriend was using my laptop yesterday and today and
somehow she locked up the keyboard under X on linux.  The mouse worked
but the keyboard did not.  These same symptoms happened twice in a
row, and they have never happened to me.  I conclude that she is
pressing keys in some manner I am not.  What is the probability I'm
ever going to get this one fixed?

Likewise for the other statements, I find ghost's "wishy-washy"
formulations to be more convincing and accurate.
