Also, I cleaned my keyboard vigorously, including prising off key caps and deploying the vacuum, lysol wipes, tweezers, and a metal comb. (It's an old IMB (yes, that same IBM, netcurmudgeon) and it responds very cheerfully to being taken apart.)

Ack! Be careful you don't kill the keyboard while cleaning it -- that happened to us once. Wet cloth + keyboard = non-functioning peripheral.
I promise, I am competent to clean keyboards at this point in my career. Especially this old dinosaur, which is designed to outlast civilization.
