I am getting double characters displayed when I type a single character on either the "A" or "Z" lines of the keyboard.  For instance, when I type "a", "az" is displayed and when I type "b", "bd" is displayed.  The same fault occurs with caps on.  This only happens on the "A" and "Z" rows of the keyboard. The Geek Squad thought it might be software related and adviced a re-install of the OS (Snow leapord).  This happened once before awhile back but cleared itself up.  Nothing was spilled on the keyboard and it is air-cleaned routinely.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
