    Perchance, are you running TypeIt4Me and/or CopyPaste?

    I asked because those two apps are known not to get along and can cause
    some weird effects like that. I recently had to replace my Apple Pro
    mouse that finally expired after 6 years. Weirdly, I thought I was
    going to have to replace my very new keyboard too because it was just
    not responding at times. I thought maybe the failing mouse had shorted
    out my keyboard. But luckily, I replaced the mouse first and, after a
    shutdown & reboot, the keyboard operation returned to normal. I realize
    you have a trackpad and not a mouse. Perhaps either it or the keyboard
    is failing.
