Before resorting to reinstalling the OS, try creating a new admin user account in System Preferences Accounts pane. This may be difficult with the typing issue, but maybe you can do it using your Screen Sharing, and leave the password blank so that there is no need to type one.
Actually, if she logs out, does the typing work normally on the login screen? If the problem does not recur, log into that new account and see if the problem does or does not recur.
If typing works normally while NOT in her usual user account, the problem in somewhere in that account. You would not need to reinstall the OS to resolve the problem. If the exact cause is too difficult to determine, she can just migrate her data to a new admin user account.
my old white keyboard has just started doing the same thing as you describe, but it started on one of the PC's we have. So we moved it to another PC, and the same thing. So I brought it to my mac laptop and the exact same thing has happened. To me, this is the keyboard being a problem, not the OS/machine. The PC is now screwed with no keyboard!
