Earlier this morning, I pulled out my phone to add something to the calendar, and I found that it had frozen. After ensuring that the power button didn't work, I pulled the battery and rebooted. It came up fine, except that the long presses on the physical keyboard have now stopped working. The SYM key also provides "\", rather than the expected behavior. The FN button in combination with keys still works, but I can't get accented characters like едц, which was working before.

I tried reflashing my current keymap, but no dice.

I tried changing the keyboard language to something else, but no dice.

Has anybody had a similar issue before, and how did you solve it?

What rom do you use?
Also, double-check lang&input settings.

I'm using this ROM: [ROM][14-04-2012][Sense 4.0A][ICS][IceZSense beta 2 | HTC One V Port], http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1555309

I've used it for a fairly long time, and the keymap has worked fine since the pre-release of beta2. It worked perfectly fine until this freeze and hard reboot.

I guess I could re-flash the rom, and wipe my settings, but ideally I want to avoid that. While I've backed my apps at least up with Titanium Backup, I don't know about the system settings. Furthermore, it could be that any system settings that ARE backed up are causing this issue... =(

I tried changing the system language, both going from "English (Germany)" (my default) to "English (Sweden)" and "Swedish (Sweden)". Neither brings any changes.

I can't change the hardware keyboard layout, as only "English" is available.

Some keys, when held down, cause the letter to be repeated. Others simply cause the letter to appear and then nothing happens. There seems to be no reason why certain letters would behave this way. It's always the same letters, though. My guess is that letters that have multiple options for long press are those who do not repeat.
