Any key? Even one that does not create scrolling on the screen? like backspace 
in an empty file?
Unless someone else has seen this, sounds really hard to debug without a 
coredump :/
The only long shot I got to offer is that nvidia provides TwinView which does 
the same as Xinerama and you might want to try that out instead. There's 
detailed information about it in one of the Nvidia README's.
