Default Mini 9 Keyboard keeps deleting things - 05-05-2009, 01:42 PM

My Dell Mini 9 keyboard is acting very strangely. It seems to be continuously entering the delete key. If I place my text cursor in the middle of a word, it starts sucking up all the characters after it as if i'm holding down the delete key. It makes life pretty irritating.

It's an Ubuntu machine.
