Does anyone else have issues with the google keyboard not responding to input? It works fine, then all of a sudden it doesn't "freeze", but won't take any input - I.e I can see the button being pressed, but text doesn't appear on screen.

It seems to only happen after receiving a SMS. I have tried hangouts, chompsms, and aosp message app and they all do this. I have also tried different keyboards (aosp, google, Swiftkey) but they all freeze up to.

I'm on a totally stock setup, but had issue on purity and PA as well in past. Seems to come and go, but lately it's happening very frequently. To get the keyboard working again I have to kill the SMS app then restart.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you tried clearing the keyboard and messaging app caches? Maybe even wipe cache and dalvik next. Seems to help with a lot of issues like this.
