Yes problems on letter "a" since a few days, I tried to clean the keyboard,
but no effect, the contact is apparently permanently made along with key [:
/] (French keyboard) which causes the / to appear with autorepetition of
letter "a". Those two keys are very far away from each other, but visibly
wired by a common contact line. The problem may be a defect of the
microcontroler chip.

It will probably need repair (on my notebook) or replacement if I can find
one (no warranty). For now I type "a", using CTRL+V
