If you have another keyboard, try it. Your original may be bad.
If not, then clean out the one you have.

Also look at the terminal settings - probably best to have vt100 picked for terminal emulation. Also set this when you log into the system
csh - setenv TERM vt100
sh or ksh - TERM=vt100;export TERM
(sometimes export TERM=vt100 will work instead)

keyboard is OK, another apps (local xterm too) work good,
unfortunatly "setenv TERM vt100" doesn't help
