ok, i tried just disabling profiles: didn't work (still keyboard lockup)

i tried removing the logon script guest.bat file: that _did_ work (i.e 
keyboard _did_ lockup).

i then re-enabled profiles, and it locked up again.

so, it would appear that any file access that occurs as part of the 
profile download / upload on login / logout respectively will screw 
keyboard stuff.

and from what you're saying, it only messes things up for non-us keyboard 

i wonder if this is anything to do with codepages?
