Weird USB keyboard/mouse problem

Just recently, in gnome, the keyboard and mouse stop responding to most
input, except, alt-tab, control-tab, the shift equivalents of those and
control-alt-f1 etc. No other keys will respond, the mouse moves but I
can't select any windows.
After pressing control-tab/shift-tab a few times (with the
desktop/window focus changing as appropriate), it all goes back to
normal for a while.
This only odd messages I see in the logs are:
Jun 10 22:21:10 xxx kernel: atkbd.c: Spurious NAK on isa0060/serio0.
Some program might be trying access hardware directly.
Jun 10 22:27:51 xxx kernel: usb 1-3.3: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed
cmd hald-addon-usb- rqt 192 rq 9 len 8 ret -110
It doesn't matter if the keyboard in plugged into a USB or PS/2 port,
it's still the same. I've tried several different USB ports aswell.
The only other odd thing is, in VMware keys will very quickly repeat,
making typing anything impossible.
