Description of problem:
I didn't destroy my /home when upgrading from F8 to F9. It contained my user
accound, /home/greg. When I logon as greg, the keyboard doesn't work. If I logon
as any other user, the keyboard works fine. It doesn't matter whether I run KDE
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-keyboard.x86_64 1.3.0-3.fc9 installed
At every login
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login as greg => keyboard doesn't work
2. Login as root => keyboard works
3. Login as test => keyboard works
Doesn't matter whether I'm using nvidia or nv X11 driver

I can't see anything out of the ordinary in the log files.
The only thing I can think of that is remotely similar is X.Org bug 12186 ,
but it's probably not it either. Have you resolved this issue yet?
Does the mouse work?
Does VT switching work?
Figured it out: Somehow the accessibility feature "slow keys" was turned on
without me knowing. I'm surprised that neither KDE nor Gnome have a notification
that the accessibility features are turned on. That would've saved me a lot of
time and frustration.
resolving as NOTABUG, caused by misconfiguration.
That's acutally not a bad idea. When we have to have accessibility on per
default (and I understand why), couldn't we have per default also some applet
showing that it is on?
we have an a11y statusicon nowadays (in F10)
