Treo keyboard.prc Endless Loop

I just spent a very long time working out which app on my Treo 650 was causing That Endless Loop Thingie ("TELT") (i.e a looping reboot/reset) after I installed the keyboard.prc app - the drivers for a Palm Wireless Keyboard.

It was the excellent Profiles application. I was worried I'd have to get rid of it, but it seems that the problem was just in the 'general' page for a profile: there's an option to turn ON beam receive. You don't want to do that!

For anyone struggling with a similar problem, this page has instructions on how to 'Warm Reset' your Treo so you can boot it to change the profiles as is required to allow it to boot in normal mode.

Hope this helps someone.
