I've had the keyboard re-map numerous times, although I have never 
stopped to try and figure out what causes it. I've also had it 
spontaneously correct itself back after a while. Fortunately my head is 
compatible with either layout, due to long-term Mac use. Are you sure 
about the cause? Is it repeatable?

I'm not sure if it's an application or an OS problem. This happened to 
me in Thunderbird on my XP laptop just yesterday, and a while ago, when 
I mentioned it to a Windows-using friend of mine (who has never used 
revolution) he said "oh yes it does that, it changes the keyboard 
layout" - by "it" he meant Windows).
