Firmware Update could not find keyboard.
Attempted to install this update on a brand new aluminium wireless keyboard that came with a brand new 21.5-inch iMac. Keyboard was 'stuttering' by repeating random characters without being touched. Firmware version in System Profiler indicated keyboard update was necessary. Bluetooth in System Prefs shows Keyboard is paired, but Firmware Update reports no keyboard. Tried another brand new aluminium keyboard from a recently purchased 27-inch iMac, same result. (Yes, I am in Sydney, Australia, where we spell it aluminIUM).

It was also supposed to prevent unintentional double-keying (typing "ii" instead of "i"), which had been a minor problem for me and which I'd thought was my own wacky fingers. Since the update, the double-keying has been far worse.
I just installed this update and now my symbol keys are all messed up...for example I can't find the "at" key (above the 2), and have had to find all of the symbols you see in this post...they're no longer where they should be! Anyone know how to roll this back? Don:t say Time Machine...I don:t have it set up yet.
