It seems you have activated stickey / slow keys inadvertently. Go to 
System Settings -> Accessibility. At the tab "Modifier Keys uncheck "Use 
sticky keys", at the tab "Keyboard Filters" uncheck "Use slow keys" and 
at the tab "Activation Gestures" uncheck "Use gestures for activating 
sticky kkeys and slow keys". Well, that was for Kubuntu 8.04 but it is 
very similar for 8.10.
