This might be completely unrelated, but it's food for thought anyway.

There is one common username/password I prefer to use to log onto my different machines. However, I have a laptop (a netbook), on which I cannot use this password with some Linux distribution (I forget which--maybe some version of Lubuntu, because it's supposedly low-overhead) because it simply refuses to let me type a specific key (lowercase 'm') when attempting to log in.

No "." character gets added in the password field, unlike every other key for the password. The button isn't broken; when I initially entered it during the account creation, the key was functional, and at no other time does the key ever misbehave. For example, in any plain text field, if I press 'm', there's no problem. I even reinstalled the OS, after I realized what was going on, and paid close attention to the password field as I entered the password when (re-)creating the account. It gets accepted at that time. Yet once I'm at the actual login screen, it's rejected.

Being a laptop, some of the keys serve double-duty and are used as the numeric keypad as well - 'm' gets assigned to '0', and the NumLock key is used to switch between numbers and letters. However, no matter how many times I press NumLock at the login screen, pressing '0'/'m' registers no additional keystroke.
