Coda, 00:45 CST Thu 23 Mar 2006 - I ended up switching the "change mode" key to "unmapped" after uninstalling all non-English languages, and it hasn't reverted to Chinese since. I think the reversion is due to random keypresses registering from some touchpad glitch. This is based on Dell's having a "disable touchpad when USB mouse is plugged in (to avoid random keypresses)" utility. Again, this seems a case of "uncripple my computer" patches being preferable to, oh, say, not crippling the system in the first place.

你好,
