I've not seen it happen myself.

I've had no recent reports of it.

We continue to make the keyboards, so I'm interested in any wide
area systemic report, so that I can feed it back into manufacturing.

The array of key switches may be connected in a matrix.  A key switch
that does not release can cause several keys to stop working.

To check for this, use our keyboard self test.
