keyboard freeze under 3.5.5

I've been having my keyboard freeze up under kde 3.5.5 running on kubuntu 
(either Dapper or Edgy).  It didn't happen under 3.5.4.  It seems to happen 
randomly about every 3-4 weeks, but I probably just haven't discovered the 
exact conditions.

The mouse remains functional and commands all are accessible but I can't do 
any keyboard input.  The problem is restricted to kde since it doesn't happen 
under other window managers, under kdm, or on a terminal login.

The only solution I've found is to delete ~/.kde and allow it to rebuilt 
during login, so clearly there is a file or files that is/are getting 

Has anyone experienced such a keyboard only freeze?  Is there a known fix?
