keyboard problems

I have an older Dell Ispiron (8600) laptop running Ubuntu 8.1 as a
desktop machine, with a keyboard connected via USB. keyboard is a
painfully generic 101 key US keyboard. If it matters at all, it means
that there are two keyboards connected.

The USB subsystem regularly resets, and causes occasionally out-of-sync
caps-lock-light and state or a dropped keypress, but things work
perfectly well -- except for Self. When one of these reset events
occurs, Self does accept any further keypresses, though all other X-apps

Also, how can you get a snap to default to "local display"? is there a
way to do that from commandline startup ?
