Well it's a laptop, so the keyboard is integrated. I don't think it's a
hardware problem, though, since the problem doesn't show up in Vista. The
problem also doesn't occur when I use a USB keyboard.

Right now, I'm running Vista using vmware from within ubuntu, and I'm
getting the same problem , so it can't be a problem with an emacs
setting or anything, since I'm using the same emacs config file that I use
when I boot into Vista normally. Since the problem occurs in both gentoo and
ubuntu, and the only thing common between them that I can think of is the
kernel .config file that I use to compile the kernels for both, I'm assuming
it's a problem with my kernel, and that I'm in the wrong newsgroup. Any 
suggestions are still welcome, however.
