FilterKeys turned on at logon.

Ok this is a very strange one.  I have a user at manage to some how turn on the filterkeys option, but it is only happenning at the logon screen when she has to type in her password.  Now the filterkeys can be turned off by holding down the rightshift key for 8 seconds, but on the next reboot the filterkeys is back on again.  To make it even more strange, if you leave the filterkeys on and take the time to logon (typing your password can be a real pain if you have strong password rules) once it boots into windows XP the filterkeys turns itself off automatically.  I am running Novell client 49.1 SP2, messed around with filterkeys settings, I have even tracked down the filterkeys setting in the registry and everything looks right.  Anyone got any ideas?  Have I missed something obvious?  The workstation is full patched, no viruses, latest novell client installed.

In Control Panel, open up Accessibility Options. Make sure Filter Keys etc. is disabled, then go to the General tab and place a check in "Apply all settings to logon desktop" then hit ok.
