I found this link (see the last post there) which talks about a work-around for the sprint treo 650 and the palm universal keyboard. many pople who have the 1.12 sprint update have complained that after the update the keyboard became wacky and almost not usable. the gist of the workarounf is 2 things: 1) hold down a button so the keyboard has a consatnt connection. the tab buttin is suggested. keep it doen with a paper clip and a little clamp. 2) modify the settings to "slow."

it works for me. obviously a new driver is the real solution, but palm seems to just want folks to buy the new $150. BT keyboard instead of updating the driver for the IR keyboard.
