Keyboard goes dead

Has anyone seen this:

About once a day, the keyboard becomes inactive within emacs. The mouse works, and the keyboard works outside emacs.

It seems to happen right after I do a grep or compile and try to do a next-error.

Sometimes, I can recover by hitting return in the compile or grep window. When I do that, the messages window appears, and anything that I typed in the other windows is processed.

Other times, I have to kill emacs.

Ctrl-G doesn't have any effect, nor does ESC-ESC-ESC.

Any clues?  Anything to try?
