I had to type no, and same question. I maintained the "n" key pressed,

pressed something, and I got a non-stop of "^[^[^[^[^[^[^[^[^[^[^[^[..."
chars. If I typed something, it appeared interspersed.

USB keyboard? I see this every once in a while (I figured it was
something related to my KVM switch); pressing the offending key seems to
fix it when it happens for me.

Yes, USB keyboard, new (±15 days). But I unplugged it completely, yet the key stream continued. I think the hey was the tab, I'm unsure if I typed it or not.

I assumed that there was a lot of some key in the buffer, but after a minute it did not stop... so I rebooted.

My older keyboard, a classical PS2 unit, died. I did not find a replacement of same kind, so I got a usb unit instead...

We would need some command, typed on another computer via ssh, to restart the keyboard.
