Movement keys keep sticking

Mac Technical Support

Brand New Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 with the latest software.

Game is fully patched.

This has been an ongoing issue for some time, but it's REALLY gotten bad since launch.

I'll be playing and especially when I strafe, whether I strafe in a straight line or strafe radially, it is not now uncommon for me to get stuck.

Worse, logging out does NOT fix the problem as I will log back in STILL stuck strafing. I've deleted cache and removed WTF folders, etc.

No clue what else to do. Guildies report no issues like this on the PC side.
This is really getting to be a problem as I level and prepare to raid in a few weeks.

I don't want to wipe good attempts because my toon insists on running in a direction.

Again, this has persisted through logouts and multiple keyboards, so it's not a keyboard issue.

However, since it doesn't persist when I log into a different toon, it's not a software issue with my keyboard software (that would have every toon behaving that way).

At the very least some kind of help would be appreciated.
Can you post some additional system information so I can send this up for review?

I Have the same issue but in Windows 7.
-Sticky keys have been disabled
-toggle keys have been disabled
-keyboard drivers have been updated (though it happens no matter what keyboard i use)
-game is fully patched
I've found that if i hold both the directional key that is stuck AND it's opposite the character will stop the stuck movement.
I've also experienced most of my keyboard not working. i have to quit the game and restart to restore functionality.
These issues only happen in game.
Tell me what logs you want and I'll post them and any screen shots requested
