    Over at the Q10 discussion blog:

    Possible double typing solution has been revealed. Users have reported that rubbing WD40 solution on keyboard reduced double typing 90%-100%. Popular ways included spraying on paper towel and wiping down the surface of the keyboard firmly, hitting each and every key and fret area.

    If anybody has an extra Classic lying around and would like to experiment for the sake of goodness, please post your experience. I am 100% sure that this issue of double typing needs to be a thing in the past. Would do it myself but I'm gladly sporting a Q10 with a replaced keyboard. Wanted to test the waters with the Classic but the double typing nightmare is keeping me away.

    Thank you.

    lol. I saw one user report that with others skeptical of it.

    I would recommend if anyone is going to try it, make sure it is with an old spare device that you don't use anymore.

    I would be more inclined to believe in an air duster spray would help.

    And I would suggest using a silicon spray instead of WD40. WD40 is a petroleum based lubricant - and it will damage plastic (like the keys, membrane layer, etc.) - silicon will not cause such damage.

    How would wiping the surface of the keys help? It would have to get behind the keys and as stated above may not be kind to the plastics behind there.
    Hopefully no one will try this.

    It seems the latest OS update has some WD-40 written into its code and the DT is much improved since it installed on my device. Just a few drops more of 'code WD-40' should totally eliminate it.
