yup, and yes, i have, to the same effect.

i only have trinity aboard. though i suspect that it is more likely an 
X issue than a trinity issue -- no special reason for this belief,

into the docking station. shall try it the other way. hang on. okay, 
have rebooted. and when it is plugged in via usb to machine itself, 
the behavior doesn't exist with the ibm m keyboard. which narrows but 
does not eliminate the problem -- with it plugged into the docking 
station, the keyboard works fine in console mode, which is to say if 
i boot to a commandline, it behaves correctly. it is only when 
starting X (which comes up as tdm, of course) that i have to unplug 
and replug the thing.
