I have seen this.  Cannot figure out what causes it, either.  I am only really typing txt messages and such, so it is not much of an issue forme, although it takes up valuable screen real-estate.

Since moving to OS2008, I have not done much major typing through the shell.  If I were, and if this happened, it would definitely be a pain.

I have yet to see this, thankfully

I also have a #3:

    3.  Sometimes, when I switch the keyboard on, the first couple letters I type cause the entire tablet to halt for a second, minimizes all the applications, and the desktop applets disappear.  (It reminds me of when explorer.exe crashes on a Win2k/XP machine).  
A reboot brings everything back.  Until then, the device seems to operate well enough, but I try to reboot asap.
