Today I had the second appearance of a really strange bug in the network
version of Archivematica 0.5. Simply put, the program lost the keyboard.
While the mouse continued to work, nothing typed on the keyboard
registered within the test environment. This meant, among other things,
that I wasn't able to use ctl+alt to get out of the windowed environment.
I ended up having to yank the power cord to get the system to restart.
I've had this problem once before, so it's become a recurring bug, though
an infrequent one. I'm not sure if it's an Archivematica problem, a
VSphere problem, a problem with the virtual system it's installed on, or
something else, but figured I would mention it here.

I just had it happen too. It seems to occur when Archivematica has been running for a
while (an hour or more).

I've been getting it a little more often. For me, the trigger more often seems to be running Xena. At some point
during the normalization process the keyboard gets lost. Or that may just be when I keep noticing it.
